The Lion and the Mouse: The Story of America and Bermuda

Show Summary

The Lion and the Mouse: The Story of America and Bermuda is a documentary film series narrated by Michael Douglas that tells the many stories of Bermuda's involvement with the political and military affairs of the United States, revealing the myriad ways the small, island nation radically influenced the shaping of one of the world's super powers. United States President William Howard Taft once famously said of Bermuda, "Never in global history has such a small country played such a large role in International Affairs." That statement been proven true many times throughout America's existence, and this documentary sheds light on how Bermuda's involvement helped shape United States history. Because of the little island's location and proximity to the United States, Bermuda's ability to interfere in American affairs could never be underestimated. Bermuda has saved Jamestown colonists from certain death, smuggled British gunpowder to bolster George Washington's supply lines, and ran the Union blockade in the Civil War. The Lion and the Mouse: The Story of America and Bermuda is a revealing documentary that, like the classic fable it's title references, proves that tiny allies can sometimes be the greatest allies.
