An early reality show on film

I liked this a lot.

Its premise is to duplicate the many thousand mile voyage of Captain Bligh and several crew after he was kicked off his ship the Bounty.

With remarkably few resources he held his crew and the boat together.

With this recreation, the boat is a careful replica built in New Zealand, and they managed to dig up (not literally I hope) a distant relative of Bligh to be Captain.

We have the term "A Captain Bligh" for someone who is Autocratic and downplays the skills of others. And the relative does show this tendency.

As this is before the idea of "reality shows" the emotions here are quite real as the crew grumbles and starts hating every moment.

So a really interesting study of human emotion. Against this is the difficulty of making an interesting documentary sitting on a small boat in the middle of the Pacific.
