About "The Franklin Expedition"
The disappearance of Sir John Franklin, his ships and crews is one of the greatest mysteries in the history of exploration. Canadian Geographic and The Royal Canadian Geographical Society are at the forefront of what’s been discovered so far.
When it was first released in 1987, Frozen in Time (inset) introduced audiences to a captivating Arctic mystery. After giving up their secrets, the bodies of Franklin expedition crew members John Hartnell, John Torrington, and William Braine were returned to their frozen graves on Beechey Island (pictured).
