The fatal crash of the Titanic during its maiden voyage on April 15th 1912 is known around the world as one of the great disasters of modern times. Although the lead up and the event itself have been highly documented by both historians and Hollywood alike what is less regarded are the stories of those who sadly perished and the families they left behind. In this unique drama-documentary we follow the true experiences of three people and their families for whom life was never the same after the sinking of Titanic. Jock Hume, one of Titanic's bandsmen, died on the ship playing the violin he loved. He left behind a fiancee in Scotland who was expecting his child. In 'Titanic: The Aftermath', Jock's grandson Christopher Ward travels to Dumfries, Scotland and to Halifax, Nova Scotia to visit Jock's grave and to find out more about his grandfather, and what became of him. John Jacob Astor was the richest man on the ship. He too went to his death on Titanic leaving an unborn child. His young wife Madeleine survived the sinking, and now their granddaughter Jackie Astor Drexel tells us what it was like for Madeleine, her grandmother, to be so newly married and so quickly widowed after the ship went down. In 1912, John Barnstead was nearing the end of a long career in public service in Halifax. The last time a passenger ship had been wrecked off Nova Scotia, things had gone badly wrong in the aftermath. This was John Barnstead's last chance to put things right, but Titanic posed an overwhelming challenge. Nobody knew how many bodies would be pulled out of the water, or what state they would be in. Now his descendant also named John Barnstead comes to Halifax to find out how John Barnstead Senior pioneered a forensic methodology, the forerunner of today's CSI.
