This video can not be played
On 26 September 2002, The Joola, a government-owned Senegalese ferry, capsized off the coast of The Gambia, killing over 1,800 people. There were just 64 survivors.
It is the second-worst non-wartime maritime disaster in history, taking the lives of more than the infamous Titanic.
Twenty years on, the BBC investigates why this tragedy occurred and tells the harrowing, heart-warming stories of survivors and families, who continue to call for the wreckage to be raised from the sea bed.
