Sinopsis: The story of the Schiller as she hit a reef near the Bishop Rock lighthouse off the Isles of Scilly. There were acts of cowardice and heroism among those on board, yet the rescue mounted by Scilly islanders in small rowing boats was one of the very utmost in selfless bravery. Although not drawing directly on comparisons between the two ill-fated voyages, taken almost 40 years apart, similarities between the loss of the Sciller and the titanic are quite remarkable. Each ship was considered to be the pinnacle of design and elegance in their day and each carried wealthy and illustrious passengers, but in the final analysis it was the sea that claimed both vessels.
