Empress of Ireland Tragedy 1914 An almost forgotten maritime tragedy is the sinking of The Empress of Ireland, a trans-Atlantic ocean liner owned by the Canadian Pacific Steamship Company. At about 2 a.m. on May 29, 1914, during one of its regular voyages from Quebec City to Liverpool, it collided with the Norwegian ship Storstad in the cold waters of the St. Lawrence River. Out of the 1,477 passengers aboard, 1,012 perished. The high death toll was largely attributable to how quickly the ship sank (14 minutes) and that most of the passengers were in bed when the accident occurred. Among the dead were 167 Salvation Army musicians who were travelling to England to perform at a charity function. A Canadian inquiry into the disaster blamed the Storstad for the collision while a Norwegian inquiry blamed the Empress of Ireland. For years the Empress of Ireland was visited by scuba divers who plundered some of its valuables. However, it is now illegal to dive near the wreck as the Canadian government has declared it a maritime gravesite. (There are human remains inside the ship.) There are no living survivors from that awful night. The last one died in 1985.

Willard-Johnson Fight 1915 This is must-see footage for boxing fans: Jess Willard's heavyweight title victory over reigning champion Jack Johnson on April 5, 1915 in Havana, Cuba. For years Johnson claimed he had thrown the fight for a $50,000 payoff. However, I believe the film shows 'White Hope' Willard's knockout victory to be totally legitimate.

The Outer Limits Similar in style to The Twilight Zone, though tending more toward hard science, space travel, time travel, and human evolution, it tried to examine in each show some form of the question, 'What is the nature of man?'. The Outer Limits was an anthology show in which each episode was a self-contained story, sometimes with a plot twist. In its original incarnation the show ran for two seasons from 1963 to 1965 in black-and-white. The original title was 'Please Stand By', but at the time, America was facing the Cuban Missile Crisis and the executives thought it might make people fearful of an air raid. This is why, later in the newer series when the show would cut to a commercial, the Control Voice said, "Please stand by." A tip-of-the-hat to the original series title.

Chepstow Caer Cymru If there is a castle that comes close to matching Harlech Castle in historical importance, that castle is surely Chepstow. Chepstow is a Norman castle perched high above the banks of the river Wye in southeast Wales. Construction began at Chepstow in 1067, less than a year after William the Conqueror was crowned King of England. It was his master castle builder in the person of his loyal Norman lord William FitzOsbern. FitzOsbern's fortresses were the vehicles from which the new king consolidated control of his newly conquered lands. Chepstow Castle became the key launching point for expeditions into Wales, expeditions that eventually subdued the rebellious population.
