Take Me To Pitcairn

This documentary is about a man who wants to go to one of the most inaccessible islands on the planet. But since no one seems to know this island, he wants to make a film about it, even though he's just an ordinary kite salesman with no filming experience.

But getting to Pitcairn Island isn't straightforward and he probably won't be the only one who wants to go there. Pitcairn Island doesn't have an airfield and the only way to get there is by ship.

The other difficulty is that Julian McDonnell is going to have to do this alone using only a couple of cameras. One of the most astonishing things about Pitcairn is that just 50 people reside there and they're all descendants of just a few British sailors (and their Tahitian wives) who were running away after hijacking a ship called "The Bounty", in 1789, and they used this desolated island as their hiding ground.

"The Bounty" became so famous that people made a lot of movies about it... with Mel Gibson, Anthony Hopkins, and Marlon Brando. The mutiny on the Bounty was gigantic media happening of that time and those sailors became the most notorious deserters in British naval history.

Like all awesome adventures it started in a tavern, called "The Town of Ramsgate", in Wapping, in London, and legend says that this was probably the last location that Captain Bligh, the captain of the Bounty, was seen with his crew before they sailed to the southern Pacific.

Of course, after their open rebellion and escape they knew they'd be executed if they were ever arrested so they had to find a location where they would remain unseen which is why they ended up in Pitcairn Island. They torched their ship and stayed there for the rest of their lives... never to be seen again.
