Mutiny on the Bounty
In 1789, one of the most famous naval mutinies of all time took place near Tahiti. Mutineers led by a young officer called Fletcher Christian took control of the British ship, casting its commander, William Bligh, adrift in the uncharted South Seas.
Using contemporary eye-witness accounts, Witness pieces together what happened.
