The mystery of Franklin's doomed North West Passage expedition has captivated people for generations. How did two navy vessels and 129 men simply vanish in the ice? After 170 years, the sensational discovery of the ships in the Canadian Arctic is revealing new evidence of the biggest disaster in the history of exploration and shining a light on a major figure in nineteenth-century exploration - Captain Francis Crozier, the expedition's commander after Franklin's death.

Discover how a young Irishman from Banbridge in County Down paved the way for acclaimed explorers like Amundsen, Crean and Shakleton. Crozier undertook six gruelling voyages to the world's most hostile regions - navigating the North West Passage, reaching the North Pole and mapping Antarctica before the final disaster in the Arctic ice.
