Setting sail tells the story of people and the sea from a multicultual perspective, with programs on the maritime exploits of the Polynesians, the Arabs, the Chinese and finally western seafarers. Shot in High Definition, the series provide a unique and universal perspective, dispelling the notion that maritime history was largely written by western mariners. A co- production of Mare Nostrum Productions, NHK and RTP in association with VRT.
