Summary:
It has been called the most outrageous escape story in the history of the high seas. In 1876, after 8 years of incarceration in Western Australia, 6 Irish political prisoners escaped on board the American whaler Catalpa. Under the pretext of a whaling voyage, the Catalpa and its unassuming captain had sailed from New Bedford to liberate the prisoners. This program explores the swashbuckling details of the dramatic rescue through re-enactments.
