A million and one stories have been told about the sinking of the Titanic — but few have touched on the unnerving subject of how colossal blunders in the construction of the luxury ocean liner and an arrogance about its indestructability actually doomed it from the start.

Until now.

Newsmax TV is proud to present "Titanic Arrogance," an explosive documentary that reveals the shocking truths about why the majestic British passenger ship sank after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912.

"Titanic Arrogance," airs this Sunday, Sept. 11th at 4 p.m./ET, only on Newsmax TV, your No. 1 source for breaking news and hard hitting opinion.

In truth, the Titanic was designed more for comfort than safety. The 16 watertight compartments that comprised the hulls were not extended very far upwards, so as not to interfere with the spacious passenger areas. This compromise made the ship vulnerable from the outset.

Worse still was the dark secret the Titanic was hiding behind its pristine hulls: Some of its coal had caught fire when it sailed for Southampton and remained alight for the entire journey.

And the Titanic's captain, E.J. Smith, had been selected more for his social rather than his sailing talent, and had had a career defined by a series of close calls.

These are just a few of the jaw-dropping facts you'll learn about the disaster that killed more than 1,500 passengers and crew members in "Titanic Disaster."

"Titanic Disaster" adds to the diverse programming featured on Newsmax TV, America's fast-growing news and information channel, carried in more than 40 million U.S. satellite and cable homes.

With compelling original shows such as "Newsmax Prime," "The Hard Line" and "The Steve Malzberg Show," Newsmax TV has become the nation's must-watch news, lifestyle and information channel.
