Bedlam launches ‘Titanic: Case Closed’

Smithsonian, Nat Geo nab 90-minute feature

Bedlam Prods., one of the shingles behind “The King’s Speech,” has produced feature-length TV drama-documentary “Titanic: Case Closed,” which has been snapped up by Smithsonian in the U.S. and National Geographic for international feeds.

The 90-minute feature, Bedlam’s first foray into TV, will air in April to mark the centenary of the liner’s sinking.

Story explores the reasons why the Titanic sunk and why so few of the passengers were rescued. Tim Matlin, author of several tomes on the liner (including “101 Things You Thought You Knew About the Titanic But Didn’t”), travels across Europe, North America and the Atlantic Ocean to meet experts and perform a series of eye-opening experiments.

Doc is written and helmed by Nigel Levy, whose credits include doc series “Horizon” for the BBC and “Fatal Attraction” for Animal Planet.

Bedlam’s Simon Breen and Airborne TV and Film’s Stuart Burrage exec produce.
