The True Story of Moby Dick
This Discovery channel film (46 minutes), now on YouTube, gives you no interpretive insight into the novel, Moby Dick. However, it shows the importance of the whale industry, the living conditions aboard a whaling ship, and the fate of the whale ship Essex. The loss of the Esex was investigated by the maritime board and well publicised. Melville used this true account as the spring board for his epic novel.
