On 15th April 1912, the RMS Titanic sank into the Atlantic Ocean. 100 years later, the city of Belfast inaugurated the opulent Titanic Museum, built at the cost of a whopping 116 million Euros. The museum also tells another story, that of the rise of Belfast city, making it one of the largest ports in the world. But there is another story, which it does not tell, and it involves India. This week, in the seventh episode of the series, Ireland Untravelled, we travel from Belfast in Northern Ireland, to Mosul in Iraq to Calicut in India, and uncover the global shame of western museums. Tune in, and discover the story of the decimation of a rich Indian cultural tradition.
