Summary Sir Peter Blake was a two-time Americas Cup-winning sailing legend who renounced his fame and fortune to dedicate the rest of his life to sailing a boat that would document the damage being done to the environment across the globe. But as he and his crew travelled to the Amazon, their boat Seamaster was ambushed by pirates and Sir Peter Blake was shot and killed. This programme looks at the legacy of his work and the mystery of his brutal murder, going undercover into the world of the illegal loggers, local pirates and logging corporations to reveal a murky world of piracy and environmental terrorism
