PIRATES: CAPTAINS OR CROOKS

Climb aboard as we set sail on the high seas in search of some of history’s most misunderstood criminals; Pirates.

Were they petty thieves merely in pursuit of a good pillage and plunder or were they in fact talented navigators and trusted captains of countless loyal crew? We unearth the truth by diving deep into the lives of some of the world’s most notorious pirates.

From legendary John Ward, immortalized in fiction as Jack Sparrow, and English explorer Francis Drake; branded Pirates by their enemies but heroes by their comrades, to the notorious Pirates of the Caribbean, swashbuckling, brutal and shrouded in myth.

With the help of historical experts and exclusive access to a wealth of pirate artifacts, each hour-long episode will track through time, charting the voyages and exploits of an infamous pirate legend to explore what it was about them that has kept their myths alive.
