'The Veronica Mutiny'
Script by Kate Derrington based upon a book in the ' Notable British Trials ' series
The disappearance of the barque Veronica excited small interest when it was reported in the British press. Later, survivors of the ship turned up in an open boat, with a story of disaster.
Somehow, however, their account was not quite plausible enough. The rescued Negro cook was terrified. The British sailors responsible for rescuing them found inaccuracies in their story. What did happen on board the Veronica in the tropical waters off South America in those weeks of tragedy?
