The Search For The Northwest Passage on DVD
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Deep within the Arctic Circle lies the most dangerous place on earth to sail a ship – a frigid maze of islands and drifting ice where channels open without warning and close again just as fast. This ice stretches for 1,000 miles across the Canadian Arctic, and finding a route across it – the fabled Northwest Passage – was the holy grail of maritime exploration for more than 400 years. Of the dozens of attempts, two are legends in themselves. The Search for the Northwest Passage reconstructs both missions, revealing why Franklin’s two ships and 129 crew disappeared so mysteriously, and why, despite his distinct lack of teamwork, Amundsen succeeded. The testimony of scientists, historians and explorers creates an engrossing account of the two contrasting adventures. DVD Features * Scene Selection
