HMAP Featured in "Into the Deep"

The work of HMAP is being featured in the documentary film "Into the Deep: America, Whaling, and the World" which is scheduled to air on PBS stations in the US on Monday, May 10th. The film, written and directed by Ric Burns for the series American Experience, tells the story of three centuries of American whaling, and the unique relationship between American whalers and the giant creatures they hunted. Whaling helped fueled the expansion of the American economy – propelled tiny backwater ports like Nantucket and New Bedford to the unrivalled center of the whaling world – and pioneered the first truly global enterprise America ever knew.
