  • Rare video from the 1986 dive through the wreck of the Titanic is set to be released Wednesday.
  • The 1986 dive marked the first time human eyes saw the Titanic since it sank in 1912. Most of the footage set to premiere Wednesday “has never been released to the public.”
  • The more than 80 minutes of footage will be released at 7:30 p.m. ET. Watch a preview below.

Rare video capturing the 1986 dive through the wreckage of the Titanic at the bottom of the North Atlantic is scheduled to be released Wednesday evening, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution announced.

Most of the footage – which was captured by cameras on the human-occupied submersible Alvin and the remotely-operated “Jason Junior” in July 1986 – “has never been released to the public,” the institution writes.

The 1986 dive led by famed oceanographer Robert Ballard marked “the first time humans had set eyes on the ill-fated ship since 1912,” the institution says.

On the ship’s maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City, the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank in April 1912. More than 1,500 people died, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica.
