Treasure Islands (3 of 4) (#103)
The calm blue waters of the Caribbean may look inviting but over the centuries their extensive coral reefs have been death traps to unwary or unfortunate sailors. If not hurricanes and storms, then raids by pirates have created the shipwrecks of the Caribbean. And those wrecks have in turn become the home for colourful coral and marine life. Follow the most dramatic stories of piracy, trade and treachery and visit the most spectacular reefs on earth, to find the true treasure of the Caribbean. [49 minutes]
