Our Story

 

Titanic Echoes is supported by colleagues in Canada and the UK who have worked in broadcast TV and have now widened their media interests to platforms that deliver fast citizen journalism and comment. The founding team all have an interest in modern history.

Titanic Echoes will feature articles and opinions from historians, history-buffs and visitors to our website who are interested in remembering their ‘yesteryears’.

Mike Prince will concentrate on producing podcasts about contemporary history.

 
 
 
 

Our approach to contemporary history is the span of historic events, new innovations, design and changing lifestyles from 1900 that are relevant to the present time.

RMS Titanic and much more across a century that saw children leaving factories and going to school, the motor car taking over the roads, aviation, radio, TV, movies, more travel opportunities, men walking on the moon, computers and the internet. Let’s record our memories and observations. The good, the bad and the exciting.

 
 
 

MIKE PRINCE

 

British TV veteran Mike Prince has been a presenter and producer in a career spanning more than half a century. History and the reporting of big events has often been a feature of Mike’s experience – he was the researcher for ATV’s documentaries marking Winston Churchill’s 90th birthday and the major celebrations for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth.

Mike comments: “In 1964 I was a young TV researcher working on a documentary to mark the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of WW1. My job was to find former servicemen who’d been at the sharp and usually horrific end of the conflict to tell their stories on the programme. I met many incredible men and some of them had strongly held views about war, officers, politicians, class and the life they returned to when it was all over. The true-life stories I was told didn’t always tally with the ‘fly the flag’ history I’d learnt at school just a few years before. It was the experience of meeting those men that hooked me on modern history”.

On a very different note, Mike’s interest in history and a bent for ‘nostalgia’ can be spotted in some of the children’s series he created or co-produced with Canadian partners (The Adventures of Shirley Holmes and The Big Garage).

 

ANDREW LOUND

 

Historian Andrew Lound makes regular appearances on TV – often the subjects are the industrial revolution, social change over the last 100 plus years, space travel and the Titanic. Andrew is a renowned expert on the Titanic and is a fine sounding board on any new revelation or conspiracy about the doomed liner.
Andrew Lound is the lead expert featured in our film Children on the Titanic.
