For those who don't know, CBC TV's Land & Sea
is a half-hour documentary show running stories of Atlantic history and culture, running Sundays at noon. In the past months they've aired "The Last Sardine Outpost" about North America's only remaining sardine cannery in Blacks Harbour, New Brunswick and "Rum Running," about prohibition-era run trade between Atlantic Canada and the French Islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon.
This Sunday, March 4 at noon, Land & Sea
will air "Pirates and Privateers," which introduces the viewer to several notorious pirates who pillaged Atlantic Canada and looks into the practise of privateering. The story "recalls the blunderbuss, the cutlass, evil deeds, and supposed buried treasure," according to the press release.
If you can't watch the show on Sunday, go to cbc.ca/landandsea after the broadcast time to see the doc and other recent programs available to be watched at your convenience.
