From the WGBH Forum Network: "On the 400th anniversary of Jamestown colony, few Americans can name the three ships that landed English colonists 13 years before the pilgrims. Find out why those colonists came and what happened to them. Historians Karen Ordahl Kupperman and Walter W. Woodward look at the story of John Smith, the early days of colonial speculation in Virginia and New England, and Jamestown's creation story from hell."
