The three parts of this unprecedented documentary - an ambitious 3-hour combination of scholastic and dramatic achievement - present the definitive history of the Pilgrims and their journey to and colonization of the New World.
This definitive look at the Pilgrims' progress - a marriage of feature-film quality historical reenactments with the latest scholarship and analysis of original source material - will open your eyes to the reality of their experience. The true tale of the Pilgrims bears little resemblance to the popular myth of elementary school pageants.
From Scrooby to Leiden to Plymouth, follow the incredible pilgrimage that landed these unlikely pioneers on the alien shores of a new continent. Endure alongside the settlers as their numbers are decimated during the perilous ocean crossing and as still more perish in their unforgiving new home. Gratefully meet Squanto and Samoset, sit at the table during the historic first Thanksgiving and learn how the colony's saga continues in the decades after.
Throughout this riveting documentary experience, you will be amazed at the difference between historical fact and what you thought you knew, and you will be surprised how much more there is to the UNTOLD STORY OF THE MAYFLOWER.
