The Piri Reis map


Take a look at this chilling, hand-drawn building plan of the infamous RMS Titanic. It was used to explain how the unfortunate (and ‘unsinkable’) ship met its fate. The design, prepared exclusively for the official British enquiry, features a number of illustrations showing why the luxury liner sank after striking an iceberg on April
14, 1912, sparking the biggest maritime disaster in peacetime that claimed more than 1,500 lives. The original cross section and building plan, drawn to a scale of 1/32-inches to one foot, is rubber stamped by manufacturers Harland and Wolff, with a handwritten date of May 1,1912.
Among its most remarkable features is a hand-drawn gash in the side of the ship at Boiler 6, where the iceberg hit, and extensions drawn over the watertight bulkheads that were not built high enough for such an occurrence.

Glued to the Screen
Glued to the Screen
BAFTA-winning acting and writing sensation, Michaela Coel has created a comedy series that revolves around her character. A strong believer of the fact that black women should “embrace their comedy, their beauty and the power of their voices”, she plays the hilariously naive Tracey, who falls in love with a white boy, Connor, then gets kicked out of her strict mum’s house. Set in a council estate, Chewing Gum offers rib-tickling comedy to relax after a tiring day.
