Explorer Paul Rose takes us on a journey through the pioneering names and events in the history of world discovery.
EPISODE 1: CIRCUMNAVIGATION
Five hundred years ago, a stricken ship limped into the port of Seville. Its crew were half dead from starvation and disease, having just completed a voyage that would change the course of history and profoundly shape the way we live today.
It was 1522, and the Victoria had just become the first ship to circumnavigate the globe. This voyage opened up the last great unknown ocean and proved, once and for all, that the world is round. It was a triumph of the human spirit ? an epic tale of courage and endurance, starvation and mutiny, heroism and death. And it turned one man, Ferdinand Magellan, into one of the most celebrated explorers in the history of the world. But behind the legend of one of the greatest-ever Voyages Of Discovery lies another story...
Paul Rose sets sail on a replica of the Victoria and shows how the real hero was not, in fact, Magellan, but a member of his crew.
