Synopsis by Alice Day
Man's need to explore crosses cultures, and early Polynesians, who had no navigation instruments, set out in search of other shores by following the stars. Much of the European population assumed the earth was flat, and was concerned with dropping off at the edge of the world. The Blue Revolution: In the Blood of Man - The Sea of the Imagination looks at the myths and fears of early seafarers, and how the lure of the sea captured man's sense of adventure.
