The True Story of Mutiny on the Bounty | 2000
Documentary that reveals the true story of the fabled 1789 mutiny on the ship "Bounty" through the journal of its captain William Bligh and other historical documents. Did Bligh survive his incredible voyage to safety in an open rowboat? How did the mutineers end up on Pitcairn Island? Why do residents of Norfolk Island, some 3700 miles from Pitcairn, claim to be direct descendants of Fletcher Christian and mutineers of the "Bounty"? The program follows Fletcher Christian's great-great-great-great grandson, Glynn Christian, on an expedition to Pitcairn Island, where he uncovers possible proof of Fletcher's death place.
