Preview – Mutiny


Mutiny has been an interesting show in that it’s use of the diaries of William Bligh, the much-maligned tyrant captain of the 18th century Royal Navy vessel Bounty, has gone some way to resetting the character of the man and how he led his 18 men on a 4000-mile voyage of survival.

Former SBS sniper Ant Middleton has the job of motivating and managing the modern-day castaways as they face their toughest challenge yet. The crew must plot a path through the Great Barrier Reef and face another two weeks at sea before they begin to think of landing on Restoration Island … and that’s only if they can navigate the reef without holing the tiny boat.
