Just wanted to be sure you didn't overlook page 2 of this blog. Be sure to check the link provided by Tom Olin (page 2), on his superb documentation of his Grandfather on his newly created blog.
would love to get a copy of voyage of the brigantine yankee.mike
I have complied a blog page of my grandfather's complete journals, photographs, and 8mm films of "The Last Voyage of the Brigantine Yankee". He was on-board the ship when it ran aground on Beverage Reef at Avarua, Rarotonga.
Here is the link: http://lastvoyageofthebrigantineyankee.blogspot.com/
Best regards, Tom
Very well done Tom!
Thank you so much for putting the blog online for all to see.
I'm about to show it to my dad tonight. It will definately bring back memories!!!
My family and I were on Rarotonga during the summer of 1964. My father was freelancing for NGS and he has a box of 35mm Kodachrome slides of the Brigantine Yankee on the reef. The are not closeups, just shots from a distance. I'd be happy to send them to you. I can also scan them into Jpegs if you wish.
One of his photos was used as the background when the credits rolled on the NGS Feb 1966 TV Special.
Thanks, Jim Dunn in Florida
Sure. Love to see them. JPEGs would be great.
The following link to Amazon has the Feb 1966 showing of the Voyage of the Brigantine Yankee which is season 1 episode 3
Hope this helps.
I have this DVD set. The Voyage of the Brigantine Yankee is NOT on it. To the best of my knowledge the "Voyage" has NEVER been re-released since 1966. Perhaps someone from NGS could enlighten us if this is incorrect? I did see a mint original 16MM copy of the Voyage sell on ebay recently. Perhaps it will show up digitally someday so us "pirates" may obtain a good copy.
Happy New Year to all!
The six hour long specials that are on the WORLD'S LAST GREAT PLACES DVD are:
