Nicholas Crane - Latitude The adventure to find the shape of the world
Early in the 18th century, twelve men were sent to a continent of unmapped rainforests and ice-shrouded volcanoes where they attempted to determine the true shape of the earth. Beset by egos and disease, storms and earthquakes, mutiny and murder, they struggled for ten years to reach the single figure they sought. Join Nick Crane to learn the true story of this pioneering expedition, as told in his new book, Latitude. Nick is a highly respected geographer and award-winning writer, well-known for his television work as lead presenter for a number of BAFTA winning series including Coast and Great British Journeys. Talking to Alex Preston.
