Experience adventure on the high seas by journeying around the world in the wake of one of the greatest explorers of all time–Captain James Cook. A hero to some, a curse to others, this son of an English farm labourer described more of the globe than any other man in three incredible voyages.

Soon to air on KCTS 9, this four-part miniseries was awarded a Gemini Award for Best History Program. For this special airing of parts one and two, we are pleased to have the Canadian Producer Andrew Ferns, originally from Victoria, share his insights into the making of this extraordinary series.

RSVP by April 8 to 604.685.7375

Episode 1 of Captain Cook Obsession and Discovery will first air on KCTS 9 on Sunday, April 14, at 7:00 p.m.
