Shipwreck Coast Part 1: The Batavia - Wreck, Mutiny & Murder


Fully dramatised with a cast of over 70, the Batavia – Wreck, Mutiny and Murder, tells one of the bloodiest shipwreck stories in Australian history.

When the vessel ran aground the devastated survivors were faced with horrific savagery, not only from the harsh environment, but a group of brutal mutineers. In a slaughter that lasted almost two months, 125 men, women and children were systematically killed. Filmed on the island where it actually took place, this is a haunting tale of treachery and suffering
