Tyrone’s ‘Mission Titanic’ To Air This Sunday

'Mission Titanic' received BAI funding
A documentary on a priest hoping to create a floating ecumenical church on the River Lagan in Belfast is to air on UTV this Sunday (September 30) at 10.15pm.

Produced by Tyrone Productions ‘Mission Titanic’ tells the story of Rev Chris Bennett, who was appointed chaplain to Belfast's Titanic Quarter when it was still a building site.

Seeing his new job as a chance to challenge the traditional approach to religion in Northern Ireland, where every village, town and city is filled with churches of every denomination, the documentary follows Chris as he hopes to find a boat which will become the ecumenical heart and soul for the transient community of people who live, study, work, and visit the Titanic Quarter.

The documentary was produced and directed for Tyrone by Patricia Moore. Patricia Carroll executive produced. The documentary received €43,000 in funding from the BAI last year.

Speaking ahead of the broadcast, Michael Wilson, managing director of television at UTV said: “This is a story that simply had to be told and I’m delighted our audience will get to follow Chris Bennett on his very personal mission to set up his church in the Titanic Quarter.”

‘Mission Titanic’ will be shown on UTV on Sunday at 10.15pm.
