Two segments from the Brendan Voyage TV film

These are just two short segments from the original TV film about a crossing the North Atlantic from Ireland to North America in a leather boat led by Tim Severin – however, they’re quite enough to make my hair stand on end.

My thanks go to Brian Anderson for spotting them.

St Brendan is said to have made the same journey in the early 6th century. The Wikipedia page about St Brendan includes the wonderful image below.
