I have read two books on this expedition and the mistakes that Commander Franklin made himself were enough to undermine their voyage. You need only to compare his leadership to that of the great Antarctic explorer, Shackleton, who faced equally dire conditions, to see why he failed.
NOVA, as always, brings the facts and does it in a fair and impartial way. I recommend this to anyone who has any interest in global exploration, particularly the Arctic and the Antarctic.
Some scary images of the dead bodies unearthed by later explorers. Might not be suitable for younger children because of this.
I bought the DVD for the Franklin report, but was pleasantly surprised by the Amundsen expedition reenactment.
