Shipwreck - The Tragedy of the Boyd

Television (Full Length) – 2000

Last week's opener about the crew of the Boyd who were slaughtered and eaten in 1809 by Whangaparoa Maori was a cracker [...]. The advance publicity blather about Shipwreck hadn't sounded too promising, and a polite distance from the America's Cup triumph was surely necessary, but it just goes to show that there's nothing like a damned good yarn.
– Fiona Rae reviewing the series in The NZ Herald, 30 June 2000
