History Channel’s Desperate Crossing – The Untold Story of the Mayflower

Everton Publisher’s Genealogy Blog reports that “The Untold Story of the Mayflower” will be shown on the History Channel in November 2006.

From the History Channel press release:

It’s a story familiar to most of us from school. And in many ways, the story of the passengers on the Mayflower is like that of every immigrant who has come to America to start a new life. Yet the true story of the Pilgrims is far more complex than the one most of us learned as children — and also more intriguing. This is a decades-long epic tale, filled with real drama, tragedy, and inspiration, revealed in the three-hour special Desperate Crossing: The Untold Story Of the Mayflower, a World Premiere on The History Channel in November 2006.

I’m getting closer and closer to determining if I had an ancestor via the to the Mayflower. I don’t have the connection yet, but if it keeps going in this direction, I look forward to this new television program.
