HMS Erebus was one of the great exploring ships of the Victorian era, a veteran of ground-breaking expeditions to the ends of the earth. The ship disappeared in the Arctic in 1848, its fate a mystery, until it was found in 2014. Michael Palin expertly weaves together the stories of the ship’s voyages and its flamboyant explorers and reveals what happened on its tragic last voyage to the Arctic. Erica Wagner, author and former literary editor of the Times, joins Michael to chat about the book.
