Searching for the Northwest Passage - The Story of Sir John Franklin

In 1845, celebrated British explorer Sir John Franklin, along with his crew of 128 men, set sail from England in search of a fabled passage west, which they believed would lead them to the riches of the Orient. None of them were ever seen again.

A search party found no evidence of any crew or wreckage. The answer to the mystery was eventually solved by John Rae, a lone doctor travelling the Arctic Circle on foot. His findings were so horrific that those back home - including Sir John''s widow, Lady Franklin, as well as Charles Dickens - waged a public campaign to discredit Rae and subsequently incriminate an entire nation of Northern Inuit people.
