That pirate got away again!

Middle Island, where Black Jack Anderson established a well hidden base.

Black Jack Anderson has slipped through the net – again!

Last Tuesday he was due to appear on the SBS1 TV programme, Who do you think you are?. But just when we thought we had him in our sights he disappeared. The producers had found a connection between the indigenous Australian footballer, Michael O’Loughlan’s, forebears and the Aboriginals who were taken by Anderson to Kangaroo Island. But in the end there was too much footage and they had to cut that segment from the show.

It is a very interesting story, nonetheless, and well worth watching if you get the chance.
