Sir Francis Drake: Behind The Pirate's Mask

Synopsis

Such was the obscurity into which Sir Francis Drake was born, that neither the date of his birth, nor the name of his mother is known for certain. Yet as a great seaman, he plundered Spanish treasure ships, circumnavigated the world, and rose to become Vice Admiral of the English Navy.  In his extraordinary role in the defeat of the Spanish Armada, he played a heroic, but sometimes shadowy role, as the piratical instincts within him gained the upper hand.
