It transpires there’s another adventurer in the story of this Ulster-Scots family - this time a sea captain who survived a dramatic shipwreck and sailed around the world.
In this final episode we travel back to 1711 and finally reveal family ties to a controversial woman, and a fascinating link to one of the most dramatic early chapters in the story of the Ulster-Scots! The family is traced back to a woman who was accused and convicted in a notorious trial. Found guilty of a scandalous crime, the family discover her fate. Although their family story is full of foreign adventure and travel, the Smyths discover in a dramatic final programme that the real danger was much closer to home. Show less
