The Edmund Fitzerald Controversy: A low-pressure system moved towards the Great Lakes in the early morning hours of November 9th, 1975. By the time this system reached Lake Superior it would be called a Cyclone by the American Meteorological Society. Twenty-nine men stood in the path of this storm, the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald, with the greatest collection of Edmund Fitzgerald experts and historians investigating all the possible theories behind the famous modern iron ore carrierís fate, stunning underwater footage, rare photographs and beautiful artwork.

Hold on and keep your mind and eyes open as you join Captain McSorley and his crew on their ill-fated journey that November morning as they guide the Mighty Fitzgerald out onto Lake Superior . You decide, after she lays broken and in pieces on the bottom what put her there. This one hour program may be the definitive documentary on the cause of one of the great modern mysteries.

The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald: On November 10, 1975, in the most famous shipwreck in Great Lakes history, the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in a treacherous storm on Lake Superior . The Fitzgerald came to rest in two pieces in deep frigid water, and authorities cannot even agree on whether the ship broke on the surface or whether it slammed into the floor of Lake Superior , not to mention the different and often conflicting theories.

The one-hour documentary features a wealth of rare photographs and paintings, historical footage of the launching of the Fitz, archival news clippings, computer graphics illustrating the sinking, and stunning underwater footage of the Fitzgerald, resting on the bottom of Lake Superior. Also included is a haunting radio transmission between the captain of the Arthur Anderson (a ship following the Fitzgerald and tracking its movements during the Fitz's final hours), and the Coast Guard Station. This captivating program is bound to please both shipwreck novices and longtime maritime enthusiasts.

Includes the following two 1-hour DVDs:

The Edmund Fitzgerald Anthology

When the Edmund Fitzgerald, a 729 foot modern ore carrier sank, it seemed unbelievable, not even a distress signal

The Edmund Fitzgerald Anthology is four separate one hour DVDs on the Fitzgerald. From her launch, until that fateful November 10th day in 1975, when the mighty Fitzgerald succumbed to the more than thirty foot waves, to her final resting place in 530 feet below the surface of Lake Superior.

Low-pressure system moved towards the Great Lakes in the early morning hours of November 9th, 1975. By the time this system reached Lake Superior it would be called a Cyclone by the American Meteorological Society. Twenty-nine souls stood in the path of this storm, the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald is arguably the most famous shipwreck story told around the Great Lakes. Yet the question remains in the middle of all who hear her tale. What really happened to the Mighty Fitz that cold November night? Some say Lake Superior split her in two and sent her to the bottom, others say she hit a rocky outcropping or shoal that punched a hole clean through her belly. Still others say it was the crew or faulty equipment or an unidentified object. This movie explores all of the possibilities and takes a serious look into the Edmund Fitzgerald controversy.

These programs are enhanced with underwater footage, rare photographs, beautiful artwork, computer animation and interviews with maritime experts, they explain the complete story on when happened to the doomed Fitz on that fateful November night.

A must have for every maritime enthusiast!
