In the late 18th century, Captain James Cook led three great voyages of discovery which pushed the borders of the British Empire to the ends of the earth. In just over a decade, his ability as a navigator and chart maker would add one-third to the map of the known world. For many he was the greatest explorer in history, but for others he was a ruthless conqueror.
While the exploits of Captain Cook are well documented, much less is known about James Cook the man. Join us on a voyage of discovery - travelling in his footsteps to uncover the forces that drove him to success, and ultimately to his own death.
