The RMS Titanic Maritime Memorial Act (link is to a pdf document), an attempt to regulate salvage of the wreck of the Titanic, was signed into law twenty years ago today. The debate over whether to salvage artifacts from the wreck, or to leave it as a memorial to those who died when she went down in 1912, had been going on since the wreck was found, and continue to this day.
Today's music is from "House of the Dead," by Scott Shannon. I found it at PodSafe Audio. Theme music composed and performed by Marc Rose.
This one was especially interesting since I maintain the website for the Titanic Historical Society. I am not nearly as familiar with the situation as those I work for, but I do hear enough to know how great a controversy it is when dealing with the wreck, and they have quite a few objections with that traveling show. Branson Titanic recently opened with the THS\'s involvement, and I think it is hoped this will provide a better way to experience what happened without further damage.
