Belfast remembers Titanic launch

A hundred years ago, the most famous ship in the world, the Titanic, was launched, 11 months before she hit an iceberg and sank.

In the Belfast shipyard where she was built, a ceremony will be held to remember the 1,500 people who drowned, and also to pay tribute to the men and women who built the luxury liner a century ago.

Mark Simpson reports.
