'An Long Chaillte' (The Lost Ship) is re-airing on TG4 this June.
1588; the Spanish Armada is sent to the British Isles with one purpose: to overthrow Queen Elizabeth I. But this misson would fail; the fleet obliterated by the merciless storms of the Atlantic Ocean without trace. This Tile FIlms docudrama investigates a mysterious shipwreck discovered off the coast of Donegal. Could this be a remnant of the doomed fleet?
With its second appearance on TG4 An Long Chaillte/The Lost Ship is an exciting history/ science docudrama that gives us a rare insight into the world of shipwreck exploration. Narrated by well-known Irish actor and Gaeilgeoir, Lochlann Ó Mearáin, this hour long documentary sees Tile Films join a team of experts over a four year period as they study this lost ship to unlock its secrets and discover the story behind the wreck.
Will history help us to discover other possibilities behind this mysterious wreck? If we are not looking at an Armada wreck, could this be the remains of a pirate ship?
