A documentary drawn from testimony at the Coast Guard?s official inquiry looks anew at one of the most storied, and mysterious, shipwrecks in American history? The sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald is one of the most famous shipwreck stories in Great Lakes history. It is also one of maritime lore?s great mysteries, the details of its disappearance as obscure now as on that fateful November day in 1975. The investigation into the wreck, resulting in a controversial final report, generated more than 3,000 pages of documentation, a mere fraction of which has been made available to the public. In The Trial of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Michael Schumacher mines this rich resource to produce the first-ever documentary account, a companion to his popular narrative Mighty Fitz: The Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. In the words of search and rescue personnel, ship designers and inspectors, scientists and naval engineers, former crewmen of the Fitz and the Arthur M. Anderson (the nearby ore carrier that captured the damaged vessel?s last communications), The Trial of the Edmund Fitzgerald recreates the doomed ore boat?s final minutes, the suspense of the search and rescue operations, and the drama of the subsequent Coast Guard inquiry. From the Anderson?s captain and first mate we hear reports of the Fitzgerald taking on water in the fierce storm near Michipicoten and Caribou Islands, losing its radar, and stating, finally, famously, ?We are holding our own.? We follow the investigation, the speculation, and expert testimony to a problematic conclusion?countered by an alternate theory that the Anderson?s captain maintained to his dying day.By declaring the Edmund Fitzgerald an official gravesite, Canada closed the wreck to further exploration. But here the exploration continues, providing a unique, and uniquely enlightening, perspective on this unforgettable episode in America?s maritime history.

There are different points of view regarding the series. Some people think that TV shows are a waste of time and take them absolutely seriously. Others argue that TV shows are a separate form of cinema art. Yes, no doubt, the long time duration of the series cannot be considered a plus. But these days, people are attracted to just that. They like to watch their favorite actors. Throughout the series, the actors become so close to us that it is difficult to imagine an evening without them.

The history of the series originates in the 1930s. At that time, the series played on the radio for a long time. But despite the low quality of shooting series, a large number of people approved of the "new art". Of course, today's series are much different from the past. All of them are crammed with various special effects, expensive and chic costumes and bright makeup. The plots are so fascinating that it’s hard to come off at least for a second. After so many years, you can watch your favorite series on the Internet, and not wait for the next series on TV.

Now there is no time frame; you can watch TV shows at your convenience. You can choose the appropriate quality, voice acting and even turn on subtitles. Now directors, producers create artistic scripts, work out every detail. Multi-episodes are so integrated into our lives that we cannot imagine what we would do without them. The purpose of the series is to attract the attention of viewers, as long as possible to keep the screens. And in my opinion this goal is fulfilled, rather exceeded!
