I think that might be stock footage of the Olympic rather than the Titanic (you can tell because of the grey hull). It looks like it's been spliced with footage of the survivors. Source: LINK

Latest comment: Smith1912...You are correct. This is the Olympic that sailed to NY before the Titanic and was also captained by Captain Smith. It is belived that at the time of the disaster, Cpt Smith got confused with the Olympic's layout and sent people to the wrong deck to get into lifeboats....none were there. Have a look here..http://www.bbc.co.u k/news/magazine-17515305
