My father, who teaches high school in Montreal, has asked me to help him =
find some clips or tapes of nautical disasters. One of his science =
classes is about to start designing safety capsules and survival suits =
as part of their unit on flotation and buoyancy. He figures a good way =
to get their interest is to show them some sea disasters, particularly =
recent ones, such as the Ocean Ranger. I'm not really sure where to =
start looking. He is already trying to contact the CBC for news footage, =
but I doubt that he'll find much. I'm wondering if any of the university =
or cegep (college) collections might have some videos on flotation and =
such in their engineering collections...

Does anyone out there have any other suggestions? Any help would be =
greatly appreciated!
