The Last Voyage: The Fate of Franklin Expedition

The story of the doomed Franklin expedition is one that has fascinated Canadians for more than 160 years. In 1845, English explorer John Franklin and his crew embarked on a search for the Northwest Passage. They disappeared, and were never heard from again. Although some remains were found of the men, Franklin's two ships- HMS Erebus and HMS Terror have eluded researchers to this day. Today a documentary that first aired in 1974 on the program Between Ourselves. It’s called The Last Voyage: The Fate of Franklin, and it documents the voyage of the doomed expedition.
