On Arts Wednesday 7 August 2019, Sylvia’s guest was Dr Stephen Gapps, curator at the Australian National Maritime Museum, talking about the latest exhibition Bligh: Hero or Villain. You probably know most about the man from either primary school history or Hollywood, where Bligh is always the villain, undone by the loveable rogue, Fletcher Christian. The exhibition challenges this view and asks the visitor to do the same.
