Golden Hind - 16th century sailing vessel on
the maritime adventure THE ADVENTURES OF SIR FRANCIS DRAKE/NBC/1962.
The Golden Hind was the flagship of English navigator and
explorer Francis Drake (Terence Morgan) who was the first Englishman to
circumnavigate the globe (1577-80).
Sailing across the Pacific on orders from Queen Elizabeth I (Jean Kent),
Drake garnered cargoes of vast treasures for England. The Golden Hind
used on the program was an exact replica of Sir Francis Drake's original vessel
(once called "The Pelican").
