Captain Kidd

Legend has painted him as a cunning, murderous pirate, with treasures buried on both sides of the Atlantic.

Was he a scapegoat offered up by English nobles to appease a powerful global corporation? Hear the evidence and decide for yourself whether this once respected sea captain was indeed a pirate or the victim of a government plot.
