It has been called the most outrageous escape story in the history of the high seas. In 1876, after 8 years of incarceration in Western Australia, 6 Irish political prisoners escaped on board the American whaler Catalpa. Under the pretext of a whaling voyage, the Catalpa and its unassuming captain had sailed from New Bedford to liberate the prisoners. This program explores the swashbuckling details of the dramatic rescue through re-enactments.

Comments about PBS Secrets of the Dead: Irish Escape DVD:

I saw this story a while back and this adventure still haunts my mind. I was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time I was watching it. Ron Howard? Kevin Costner? Will somebody please make a movie out of this adventure? That would be so awesome!!And what really sad is that it's a true story.
