'Bearing lost honour' on the Titanic


A new book has cast some light on the story of J Bruce Ismay, the owner of the Titanic who sailed to safety with women and children when it hit an iceberg, leaving other men to go down with the ship.

Frances Wilson, author of How to Survive the Titanic, and Ismay's great grandson Angus Cheap, discuss what really happened and why he was actually a "very fine man".
