Episode 1

Cast adrift in the Pacific Ocean, nine men are setting out to recreate one of the greatest survival feats of all time: the 4000 mile journey of Captain Bligh in a tiny wooden boat after the legendary mutiny on the Bounty. Anthony Middleton, of SAS: Who Dares Wins is stepping into Captain Bligh's shoes as leader of the expedition, joined by eight other men including a carpenter, a doctor, and several specialist sailors. Like Bligh's men they battle brutal storms and treacherous reefs, braving the furnace of northern Australia's shark infested waters, and the challenge of landing on remote tropical islands to hunt for vital supplies. There's an old nautical saying: 'When ships were made of wood, men were made of steel' but can today's men match up to the extraordinary achievements of their predecessors?
