Mayflower 400 UK has been presenting a series of digital programmes in the build-up to the 400-year anniversary of the ship's historic voyage.
My Mayflower tells stories of those forever linked to the ship's legacy and impassioned by the anniversary of its pioneering sailing to America in 1620.
Watch our episodes below to discover hidden secrets and fascinating insights, told by the people who live and breath the stories of the Mayflower.
Meanwhile, our Re-Informed series allows artists and producers to give an insight to their work and how it explores the Mayflower story - without shying away from its challenging history.
Next episode: Re-Informed - Some Call It Home
This Saturday, the latest short film in the Mayflower 400 ‘Re-informed’ digital series goes behind the scenes of a provocative multimedia music drama which is set to premiere at Theatre Royal Plymouth this June.
Some Call It Home is a contemporary classical piece which forms a hugely important part of the Mayflower 400 commemorations.
This thought-provoking performance piece responds to the arrival of the Mayflower passengers in modern-day Massachusetts 400 years ago and asks the central question: ‘What can we learn about the events of 1620?’
Our film talks to Dr Robert Taub, music director at The Arts Institute Plymouth and the creator, producer and director of Some Call It Home.
Dr Taub discusses gives an in-depth look at the critical events - past and present - that have inspired and influenced this performance, as well as the incredible, contrasting styles of internationally renowned composers Jane O'Leary and Jonathan Dawe, who have composed original music for the piece.
We also hear from NYC Metropolitan Opera Young Artist award-winning soprano Erika Baikoff, who will play a leading role in Some Call It Home.
Watch the video this Saturday, 22 May from 5pm UK time (12 noon EST) on the Mayflower website or live on our Facebook page.

My Mayflower: Mayflower Reflections
This short film in our My Mayflower digital series explores the story of Mayflower Reflections, a virtual reality experience that immerses audiences in the story of the momentous journey and explores the contemporary parallels with the early voyagers.
The latest film in our My Mayflower series tells the story of Warwick Charlton, the man behind the remarkable Mayflower II project in 1957 - a monumentous feat of construction, planning and engineering.
My Mayflower: The Man Who Built The Mayflower II tells the real story behind the ship's sailing with fascinating archive footage and an in-depth interview with Warwick's son, Randal - author of The Wicked Pilgrim, a new book that chronicles Warwick's endeavours.
The second in the My Mayflower series follows the story of Rachel Carter and the creation of the Pilgrim Woman.
Rachel's story brings together different cultures on both sides of the Atlantic in a true commemoration of their shared history, while shining a light on the often untold role of women in the Mayflower story through the making of her Pilgrim Woman sculpture.
A talented textile artist from the Pilgrim Roots region, Rachel Carter can trace her ancestors back to the very places in England from where many of the Pilgrims came before they planned their voyage on the Mayflower some four centuries ago.
She ‘recreated’ that very journey aboard a modern cargo vessel to work with local people in Provincetown, meeting a member of the Wampanoag tribe as she learned of their ancient weaving techniques, finding vital inspiration to create - and eventually become - the ’Pilgrim Woman’.
