Discovery will air a one-hour special, called "Inside Raising the Concordia," that captures the major salvage operation taking place to raise the Costa Concordia, and to reveal the inside story as told by the elite team of TITAN Salvage-Micoperi engineers who are tasked with the seemingly impossible - rotating the massive ship into an upright position and eventually removing it from the sea.

The show, which is set to premier on Friday, September 20, at 10:00 p.m. EST., will air on the Discovery Channel in more than 220 countries and territories. Viewers are also now able to watch never-before-seen, time-lapse footage of the ship’s recovery at www.discovery.com/RaisingTheConcordia.

In this one-hour special, Discovery will show how the TITAN-Micoperi engineers prepped for the job, which included building colossal barges complete with a hospital, gym and living quarters for the hundreds of divers and specialists. It will also reveal the step-by-step process involved with pulling the ship upright – a process known as parbuckling – and how they plan to refloat it before finally being towed away to be scrapped.

Tune in to see the incredible story of Costa Concordia as the salvage team prepares for the largest refloat in history.
