This package caters to devotees of pirates and pirate lore. It begins with documentary program that attempts to separate the historical facts regarding pirates from the myths and fables surrounding them, with biographical profiles of such legendary figures as Captain Kidd, Blackbeard and Captain Morgan, and re-explorations of some of their exploits. The program argues that although tales of pirate torture, wantonness, sea battles and the like were often grossly exaggerated, the truth is far more interesting: pirates experimented with concepts such as equality, liberty and democracy, centuries before those ideologies fueled the French and American revolutions. Next on the bill are several episodes of the series MYTH BUSTERS, pulled from Season Five. It starts with the PIRATE SPECIAL, a two-hour program that includes four different adventures - CANNONBALL VS. SPLINTERS, EYE PATCH, RUM STAIN REMOVER and KNIFESAIL. The set also includes CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, which finds Jack Sparrow and Will Turner testing the myth of the "rowboat submarine." Then, in THE SAND NECK TIE, Kari, Tory and Grant test the validity of one of the most feared piratical punishments in history, where an individual gets buried in sand up to his or her neck with the tide coming in. Finally, the gang tries out another stunt from the first PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movie, attempting to fire cutlery, nails and glass from a conventional cannon.
