Duration: 8 hours 17 minutes
This documentary records the events of the most celebrated mutiny in the annals of the sea: the 1789 revolt against Captain William Bligh in the West Indies. Was Bligh a sadistic disciplinarian who terrorized his crew? Or a superb and misunderstood seaman? Over 200 years later, the controversy surrounding this legendary captain still rages. The truth may lie in this narrative based on the ship's log, in which Bligh writes of the resentful crew, ravaging storms, and uncharted islands that led to mutiny.
