Shipwreck! Addendum

As an aside to the previous post, it's interesting that someone can sell the rights to film a version of the Grafton and Invercauld story, as the original accounts are well out of copyright and easily available (here and here), and there is so much digitised contemporary info available surrounding the events, that I would have thought you needn’t bother. Good luck to the seller of course (and I haven’t read the book), but it seems a waste of money on the film company's part.

Crikey, a librarian can find all the necessary in a day or two, then give it to the scriptwriter to work up. Hey - I could do with the money!
