2:10 Titanic Mystery Solved - Professor Tracy Oost
One of the last great mysteries of the Titanic has been solved at last. It's the story of two year old, Lorraine Allison, the daughter of a Canadian entrepreneur who was on the Titanic with her family when the luxury liner went down.
At the time she was believed to be the only child from First or Second class who with went down with the ship. But in 1940 a woman called Helen Kramer claimed to be Lorraine Allison and heir to the Allison fortune. But now DNA testing, as part of something called the Loraine Allison Identification Project, has shown the story to be a hoax.. a hoax that caused untold misery for the Allison family over the years.
The Project is led by Professor Tracy Oost, a forensic scientist in Canada.
2:20 The Record Attempt - Mike Lindsay - For five years four Merino sheep evaded capture from Mike Lindsay's Station on Omahau Hill in Twizel. Finally... last year... their years on the land ended when they strayed closer to the property fenceline and within easy reach of Lindsay and his dogs. One more year, and they would have been out as long as Shrek the famous sheep who avoided muster for 6 years. Now it's time for a haircut, the first in half a decade. Lindsay is hoping the fleece will set a new Guiness world Record. He's assembling a team of officals under accordance with the Record book rules on Saturday for the shearing.
