Did anyone else watch this ? It has really annoyed me ! 

The film was about the rescue of a crew aboard a tanker which had split in half in horrendous seas. All well and good so far until the end , when the original rescuers' photos were shown.

These heroes were black , so why were they portrayed as white ? 

What an insult to those brave men !!

I couldn't find any information in print or on Google images to back your statement so cannot comment.

Oh dear , I must be losing my eyesight again.

Many thanks to @koshka and @natty_noo for pointing this out.

My apologies to everyone, I am so sorry.

I understood them all to be white, thats what the photo shown at the end of the film, when it shown them getting married, and other photos in the net show the real ones as white, I could be wrong
