  • Published on: 05 February 2015
  • Seeking the unknown, braving the hardness of the North — the ill-fated Franklin Expedition has become an enigmatic part of Canadian national identity. Many have sought to unravel the mystery of what really happened to Sir John Franklin and his crew. Now, 169 years after they set forth, an exciting discovery — the ship Erebus has been found.

    On February 3, 2015 experts Marc-André Bernier and Adrian Schimnowski shared their experiences of the hunt for Franklin. The lecture explored recent discoveries and artifacts, underwater archaeology and what comes next in piecing together the real story of the Franklin Expedition.

    As other commenters have stated, this lecture could have been about 35-40 minutes long but the speakers were rambling on and on. Still, it's an interesting subject and it's always good to hear the voice of Malcolm McDowell (my favorite actor) in the intro.

    Maybe it’s my headache, or maybe this is responsible for my headache, but I have rarely—if ever—had to advance past so many boring men whose only contribution was to say, “Hey! I was an executive who had nothing to do with the actual expedition, but I’m here to claim partial credit and to get an ego boost for doing nothing but making a few phone calls, attending a few planning meetings, and.....yeah! That’s about it!” It’s still going on 30 minutes into this video, WTF?!?!?

    Its a Lecture Presentation, not a documentary or entertainment film. All those complaining it is boring should watch the latter, or for those with a real short attention span, stick to cartoons. I guess the purpose of these lectures is one way to publicise their work, and with some many organisations involved , they want to demonstrate the levels of co-operation it took and pat themselves on the back - which granted is boring.However, academics often rely on this format to gain publicity, in the hope this will bring new investment and interest in their current endeavour, or future projects, they would like to undertake.

    I remember hearing about the Franklin in the past but never knew much about it. What a fascinating story. It's crazy to think that the standard for hundreds of years has been to underestimate the knowledge of First Nations Peoples the world over. The more we learn to value their stories and wisdom the more we all benefit. In Australia our Indigenous peoples continue to be doubted and dismissed on subjects they know more about than literally anyone else in the world. Since our governments are sometimes slower to act, it is so important that academics continue to push for these opportunities to collaborate and to listen indigenous perspectives.

    Am i wrong in saying that it was a British exploration that just fell in Canada's back garden. Why is it you claim it was a Canadian adventure?
