He walked the line between hunter and hunted--until the nation he once served chose to make an example of him.
His name conjures up images of swashbuckling action, betrayal, the Jolly Roger and danger on the high seas. But one of the most notorious pirates in history started his maritime career as a respectable businessman and agent of the Crown.
Sailing through history in search of one of the most colorful figures to ever ride the waves, INVESTIGATING HISTORY® goes beyond the schoolboy tales to reveal the man behind the legend. With the help of scholars like Dr. Ray Ashley, the executive director of the San Diego Maritime Museum, this illuminating program traces Kidd's transformation from hunter to hunted, reliving the mutiny that helped push him to piracy and chronicling some of his most celebrated exploits. But CAPTAIN KIDD also reveals the true source of his reputation, which was as much a creation of 17th century propaganda as anything else.
