About the Show

The Cutty Sark, built on a tributary of the River Clyde near Glasgow and launched in 1869, is one of the world's most famous vessels. David Hayman travels to Australia to uncover the links the Cutty Sark forged with this Commonwealth country, and to reflect on her legacy. It's a story of adventure, money, mutiny and murder. Ravaged by fire in 2007, the Cutty Sark has been restored, and today stands as a testament to the craftsmanship and ingenuity of Scottish ship designers. Part 1 of 4.
