The stories of six first-class passengers on the Titanic represent the tensions of Edwardian society—an era that ultimately went down with the ship. While industrial progress continued, there was a new sense of pessimism and fear, and a loss of confidence in technology. Guest: Gareth Russell, British historian and author of "The Ship of Dreams: The Sinking of the Titanic and the End of the Edwardian Era"
