Marci and Jeff will explore everything related to Titanic during the show’s national, three-hour live broadcast to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the ship’s launch in Belfast and subsequent tragic sinking just off Canada’s Atlantic coast. Marci will also tell viewers about her Top Things to Do in Belfast, while Jeff will take viewers to Belfast’s very own Canadian Sports Bar, Rockies Sports Bar. Live music, Titanic artefacts and special interviews will also be part of the Titanic broadcast day.
