The sinking of The Bounty in Hurricane Sandy remains an enigma for some, a scandal for others, and a tragedy for most. Why was the ageing wooden vessel out at sea during one of the worst storms to hit the Atlantic seaboard in a generation? Bounty: Into The Hurricane will reveal much: from her building and launch in Lunenburg N.S., to her 50-year struggle to pay her way as a moored attraction and movie star, to her final fateful journey in October 2012.

Shot on location in Halifax NS, Elizabeth City NC, and Baltimore MD. Produced by Tell Tale Productions, this documentary aired on CBC TV Maritimes on August 1st 2014.
