The Buccaneers VOL. 1

The Buccaneers is based on the true story of England’s attempts to destroy the Caribbean’s pirates’ stranglehold on shipping routes in the New World. Produced in England at the famed Nettlefold Studio sound stages in Walton-on-Thames. The Buccaneers features the famous British actor Robert Shaw (Janus, Man For All Seasons) as Captain Dan Tempest, a pardoned ex-pirate, and Peter Hammond (The Avengers) as Lt. Beamish, the Crown appointed deputy governor of New Providence in the Bahamas.

Receiving the King’s pardon in return for giving up a life of piracy, Tempest and his stalwarts confront the privateers on the high seas.
