Joseph Bell, from Farlam, near Brampton, was the ship’s 51-year-old chief engineer when it sank on April 15, 1912, claiming more than 1,500 lives.

Legend has it that he and others refused to desert their posts as they battled to keep the stricken vessel afloat and to maintain power right up to the last minute. Saving the Titanic is the first feature-length HD drama documentary to focus on the work of the men below deck.

Irish filmmaker Keith Farrell, its creator and co-producer, said: “I hope it will reawaken people’s interest in Joseph Bell because he really is the hero of this story.
