If Parks Canada has success in the renewed search for the lost Franklin expedition, it will be in part because the Inuit people of King William Island have pointed the way.
For generations, the Inuit have passed down an oral history about what happened to the ill-fated ships, including detailed stories about where it happened, and the struggle for survival.
In the second of a two-night special series from the north, Peter Mansbridge travels to the tiny hamlet of Gjoa Haven to hear from the local Inuit about their untapped knowledge of the mysterious expedition.
Watch the first part of the two-part series.
Finding Franklin will be broadcast on Saturday, Sept. 15th at 10 p.m. and 1 a.m., and on Sunday, Sept. 16th at 8 p.m.
