Blucher was sunk at the battle of the Dogger Bank, for info on this event got to the SN directory and look up HMS Lion and find the Dogger bank section.
Blucher was an Armoured cruiser, a style of ship made obsolescent by the battle-cruisers and ended up a victim to the new class when she was added to the line of battle to 'make up the numbers'

That sinking dreadnought was the Austro-Hungarian battleship Szent Istvan (the Hungarian name for the patron saint of their country, Saint Steven). She was torpedoed by Italian MTBs in 1918.

The Svent Istvan footage, together with that depicting the loss of HMS Barham in WW2, seems to be used to support just about every sinking on the 'History Channel' regardless of the description of the vessel, the timescale or the reason for the sinking.
