The documentary, The Titan Sub Disaster: Minute by Minute, features audio obtained from the Canadian Air Force team leading the search-and-rescue effort. 

The recordings, captured by sonobuoys deployed by the Canadian Navy, reveal rhythmic banging noises detected in the search area.

American journalist Ryan Cooke, featured in the documentary, highlighted the significance of the discovery.

“That changed everything.” 

Former navy submarine captain Ryan Ramsey, also featured in the clip, described the sounds as resembling a repeated knock on a door.

“It’s like somebody is making that sound and the fact that is repeated, is really unusual,” he said.

The wreckage from the Titan Submersible was eventually located 500 metres from the bow of the Titanic.

So far, there is still no confirmed explanation of the noises, and an investigation by US and Canadian authorities is still underway. 

The documentary aims to provide a comprehensive account of the events leading up to the Titan Submersible disaster and will air in the UK in March.
