Great British Ships (2018): S01E09 – Mayflower


Presenter Rob Bell reveals the secrets of the historic ships that shaped the world.

Also known as World’s Greatest Ships (Australia and Amazon Prime).


This humble British merchant ship carried one of history’s most important voyages. It was hired by a group of religious dissidents to transport them to a new life of freedom in the New World. Facing fierce storms, mutiny, deprivation and death, Mayflower’s crew and the Pilgrims overcame almost impossible odds to establish the colony that ultimately gave birth to the United States of America.
