From Baltimore to Barbary - The Village That Disappeared

Sometimes history throws up stories that are more dramatic than any fiction. And this is one such story. Taking us on a dramatic journey from the south west coast of Ireland to the souks and harems of North Africa's Barbary Coast, it begins on a summer's morning in 1631, when a pirate ship sailed into Roaring Water Bay in West Cork and raided the quiet coastal village of Baltimore. A crew of ruthless slave traders roused the villagers from their beds, slaughtered anyone who resisted, and herded 107 people into the hold of their waiting ship. (First broadcast 2010)
