    Have you ever watched a real expert do a job with such expertise and style that it makes you feel good just being there?

  • Program features book about Titanic experience, survival

    Albert Caldwell was 26 years old when he, his wife and their 10-month-old son boarded the Titanic.

How they came to be aboard the Titanic, how they survived the sinking and how the ordeal affected the rest of their lives is a story told by Julie Hedgepeth Williams in her newest book, “A Rare Titanic Family: The Caldwells’ Story of Survival.”
