Join award-winning filmmaker John Boyle at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth on February 24 for a fascinating talk about his investigation into modern-day piracy.
Hear stories from the front line in the war against Somali pirates. Meet all those involved from pirates to presidents, naval commanders to negotiators, heroes to hostages.
Explore why these young men are choosing to risk their lives and freedom; the reality of life as a pirate; the defence tactics used by the international navies and shipping vessels; and what happens next.
The talk, entitled Blood Ransom is at 6.30pm on Wednesday, February 24 at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall and tickets costs £7. To book your place please call 01326 214546.
