Life on Pitcairn Island – home of the descendants of the mutineers from HMS Bounty

Pitcairn Island was settled by the descendants of the mutineers who commandeered the HMS Bounty in 1789. Today, the community on Pitcairn consists of around 50 people who have fascinating history, culture and customs. In this film, we visit Pitcairn Island to meet the islanders and discover life on one of the world’s most remote inhabited islands.
