Titanic legacy should be fully celebrated

Has there ever been a better television programme about the Titanic than Channel 4's 'Titanic the Mission'?

This series has given the whole of the UK a fascinating insight into the tremendous work carried out by the workers of Harland and Wolff 100 years ago.

When you look at the effort that has gone into recreating various aspects of the Titanic, it makes you wonder what is being planned to commemorate the 100th anniversary in 2012.

I can remember talk about a 'Ship of Lights', being built on the old shipyard site, interactive displays and a museum. Are these plans now forgotten? Or have I missed the latest updates?

I think it's about time all parties concerned let us know what is happening.

With the Olympic Games starting at about the same time in London, surely this would be a great opportunity to tap into the influx of visitors the country will receive and boost our economy.

So, come on. Let us know what is happening - and put me down for the first ticket for "The Belfast Titanic Experience."
