The Pilgrims' narrative has been shrouded in myth, embedded in Thanksgiving Day feasts, football, and parades. Who were the men and women who constituted this band of English Protestants whom we call "the Pilgrims"? A documentary film by award-winning director Ric Burns, The Pilgrims chronicles the deep history, origins, and critical first decade of the first permanent English colony in New England.

The final now for Roger Rees in a great program

Roger Rees (Nicholas Nickleby) is reflective and subltle in this last performance of his life, reciting from William Bradford's third person account of the Pilgrims. Not to be missed as the final bow of a greet carrier.. The documentary is supported by a pantheon of great writers; including Nathaniel Philbrick; author of "Mayflower." A great documentary for American and British history collections

Slow beginning but then speeds up to make a worthwhile watch

There was almost too much information in the beginning about the Separatists in England and their experiences in the Netherlands. Once their voyage began it speeds up and is a very enjoyable learning experience.

I was a bit appalled by the brutality of these early settlers; however, the truth needs to be told.
