About

JOURNEY IN THE WAKE OF ONE OF THE GREATEST EXPLORERS OF ALL TIME

This four-part series features high adventure, triumph and tragedy as it delves into the life of Captain James Cook. A hero to some, a curse to others, across three incredible voyages he described more of the globe than any other man.

It’s a tale of obsession and discovery, respect and brutality, courage and madness, from the pomp and splendour of the royal courts of England to death on a beach on the far side of the world. Renowned Cook expert Vanessa Collingridge searches for the man behind the legend in a series that is part biography, part travelogue and completely enthralling.
