David McCullough narrates this heroic story of Jack Binns, a courageous young man who attempts to save the lives of more than 1,500 people trapped aboard a sinking ship. Jack Binns learned the art of wire-tapping when he was only a boy and by the time he was 26 he was working for the White Star Liner. Wireless tapping was not seen as a security measure until January 23, 1909, when two ships collided off of Nantucket Island due to dense fog. Listen to Binns' own recollection of the next 24 hours, as he endured the Atlantic cold, transmitting messages. This documentary includes interviews with the descendents of the passengers and crew that were on the sinking ship. Matthew Broderick provides the voice of Jack Binns.
