A couple of weeks ago, Reuters television reported on the successful auction of Titanic-related materials and rarities at the Christies auction held in New York City. Many fantastic items from the Titanic that included plaques and other items from the recovered lifeboats were included in this event. I was invited to this auction but unfortunately had some other projects that kept me away from attending this gala affair.
For those of you that missed this auction, the following link is a Reuters news report about the auction that highlights several of the key Titanic pieces. Included in this film clip is my underwater video footage of the Titanic that I took during my 2003 scientific research diving expedition to the wreck site. I have been profiled several times by Reuters news service for my underwater video footage of Titanic.

Additional footage that I have shot on Titanic have found themselves in several television documentaries that include two National Geographic specials, a History Channel special and a commercially-available National Geographic DVD. Our Titanic underwater footage was used by Partisan Pictures for the promotion of the 2004 Robert Ballard / NOAA expedition to Titanic.
