Titanic craftsman remembered


The living links to the workers who built the Titanic are fading as time passes.

But one got in touch with the BBC's Chris Page after seeing his report on BBC Newsline about joiners in County Londonderry who are building a replica of the Titanic's grand staircase.

John Flynn's grandfather, also called John, was a joiner who worked on the original staircase.

It was one of the most spectacular sights on board the most famous ship to sail from Belfast.

Chris Page reports.
