The Sailing of the Mayflower
On September 16, 1620, 102 men, women, and children set sail from Plymouth, England to the New World, where they could have religious, political and personal freedom.
In “You Are There: The Sailing of the Mayflower” we listen to radio reporters who are on the scene as the Mayflower makes ready to set sail — But there is a problem: It is already September 6th, 1620, and the Pilgrims’ ship is still at harbor at Plymouth Harbor, England. Plagued by problems with the crew, persecution from the English Church, and winter coming on, time is running out for the Pilgrim voyagers even before they begin their dangerous journey — will they be able to set sail, or must their journey be called off before it begins? This classic Old Time Radio program is terrific “living history for the ears” that brings the hopes, dreams and fears of these hardy folk to vivid life for your kids.
