The film series Pirates of the Caribbean presents the buccaneer lifestyle of pirates as a back-stabbing, high-living, hard-drinking world. It makes for an entertaining series, but is it a true depiction of the times? Historical evidence of real pirates shows that amidst the lawless merriment, pirates actually formed a highly organized society, where democracy ruled and voting and healthcare preceded England by a hundred years. The Real Story Pirates of the Caribbean interviews historians, weaponry experts, and one of the film’s screenwriters to show how true pirate adventures inspired the films. Buy it on Amazon.

About The Real Story

They’ve thrilled us, horrified us, and devastated us. They’ve raised questions about our past and given us hope for a brighter future. They are some of Hollywood’s biggest hits, all works of fiction, but all inspired by real events more dramatic than anything a screenwriter could dream up. Check out The Real Story Platoon.

My thoughts:

The Smithsonian Channel does a great job with this documentary about the real lifestyle of historical pirates in the early 18th century. Of course, Blackbeard is one of the most famous pirates of that era, but he may not be the most typical. I enjoyed learning more about the lifestyle and social structure of real-life pirates. And, my husband loved learning about the cannons and other weapons used for fighting. There’s loads of interesting information included. I definitely recommended for teens and up given the level of the fighting included on the show. It is rated PG-13.
