DISC ONE - CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS
Christopher Columbus would become known to history as the man who discovered the New World, and the story of how he accomplished his momentous feat is a tale of disappointment, exploitation, gold-fever and courage. Aboard the Santa Maria searching west in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe, Columbus would discover a remarkable series of islands, but would also leave a legacy which is still seen today. Expert analysis, extensive period imagery and dramatised re-enactments tell the story of one of the greatest discoveries in history. Narrated by Roy Cane.
DISC TWO - SIR FRANCIS DRAKE
A large thorn in the Spanish side, Sir Francis Drake proved an illusive foe in the latter half of the 16th Century. As empires and kingdoms expanded so the race for the dominance of sea lanes became an essential goal as gold, jewels and other goods required safe passage. Betrayed by the Spanish at an early age, Drake would never again trust the word of a Spaniard, and made it his lifes mission to cause havoc, plunder and seek revenge, culminating is the destruction of the 1588 Armada. Including footage shot onboard a seagoing replica of the Golden Hind, this DVD maps the life of Drake from his first journey as a master and commander, to his famous victory over the Spanish in 1588. Narrated by Michael Leighton.
DISC THREE - SIR WALTER RALEIGH
Like his contemporary Sir Francis Drake, Raleigh held a contempt and loathing for the Spanish that he possessed from an early age. Unlike Drake however, Raleigh found himself deeply embroiled in court and royal politics that would ultimately restrict his ability for travel, exploration and adventure. A believer in the legend of El Dorado, Raleigh repeatedly travelled to South America in a bid for colonisation for his queen, trade routes for his country, and untold riches and fame for himself. Dramatised eye-witness accounts, reconstructions and period imagery help to convey the tale of one of Englands greatest heroes. Narrated by Michael Leighton.
