This is a 30 minute radio show about the Pilgrims from 1951. It has stirring music, poetry, and the story of the first Thanksgiving.

This is the story of William Brewster, one of the Pilgrims who courageously pursued freedom of religion by printing Puritan gospel tracts.
Brewster went into hiding under threat of imprisonment in England and was smuggled aboard the Mayflower.

Here is the story of the PIlgrims by an eyewitness, none other than William Bradford, governor of Plymouth.

If you don’t have time to listen to the whole thing, at least listen to chapter 4. It tells why the Pilgrims left England.
