Featuring Vanessa Collingridge (renowned Cook expert)
It's high adventure, triumph and tragedy as we journey around the world in the wake of one of the greatest explorers of all time–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. Geographer, historical consultant and bestselling author Vanessa Collingridge searches for the man behind the legend as she traces his story in a series that is part biography, part travelogue–and completely enthralling.

EzyDVD - "I had ambition not only to go farther than any man had been before, but as far as it was possible for a man to go." James Cook
Geographer, historical consultant and bestselling British author Vanessa Collingridge searches for the man behind the legend as she traces his story in a series that is part biography, part travelogue—and completely enthralling.
A hero to some, a villain to others, this son of an English farm labourer described more of the globe than any other man in three incredible voyages.
Discover the man and his times. Step back into the 18th century to experience what it was like to navigate uncharted and unknown waters in search of a legendary Great Southern Continent and then a North West Passage through the Arctic ice; as well as to be among the first Europeans to visit exotic Pacific islands like Tahiti.
Witness Cook's discovery of Hawaii. Sail the uncharted coast of New Zealand, proving it isn’t part of the ‘great south continent'. Land with Captain Cook at Botany Bay as he claims Australia for king and country—a 'discovery' that goes unquestioned for over a century.
Meet the men of the Endeavour, Resolution, Adventure and Discovery, and learn what sea-life was like for the sailors and scientists who made it all possible, including the celebrated gentleman-botanist Joseph Banks and a young naval officer named William Bligh.
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.

Suite101 - Geographer and Historical Consultant Vanessa Collingridge travels in Captain James Cook's footsteps to Canada, Tahiti, New Zealand and Australia to find the real man behind the legend. Was Cook a ruthless conqueror, as some believed, or a hero?
Step back into the 18th Century to experience navigating unchartered and unknown waters in search of a legendary Great Southern Continent and a North West Passage through the Arctic ice. See the first Europeans visiting exotic Pacific Islands like Tahiti and Cook's discovery of Hawaii. Sail New Zealand's uncharted coasts and claims Australia for king and country at Botany Bay.
Discover what life was like for sailors and scientists, including Sir Joseph Banks (who paid £10,000 for the privilege!) and a naval officer, William Bligh.
Collingridge interviews descendants of indigenous people of Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii whom Cook encountered during his travels. We hear both sides of the story.
"I would like people to look again at James Cook and realize that the story of this flawed genius is much deeper and richer than being just hero to some and villain to others."
