MAKERS of the film Titanic have apologised to a Scottish town for turning its local hero into a villain. The film showed the first officer, William Murdoch, taking a bribe, shooting a third-class passenger who tried to fight his way into a lifeboat and then turning his gun on himself.

In a letter to Alisdair Morgan, the member of parliament for Murdoch's hometown, Dalbeattie, 20th Century Fox admitted that it had no evidence the first officer of the fated ship had done any of those things. - Reuters, London
