In the summer of 2008 Billy Connolly set sail on a ten-week journey from ocean to ocean: from the Atlantic to the Pacific, by way of the North West Passage - a legendary route deep within the Arctic Circle that has thwarted explorers and fortune-hunters for centuries. For Cook, Drake and countless other adventurers, the North West Passage has been an alluring but impossible journey, a trial of unparalled physical and mental strength, a haunting and fascinating wilderness.
Now the Arctic is melting at a rate of 36,000 square miles a year and the journey is finally possible. For the first time, if you're quick, you can sail freely, if precariously, from Newfoundland right round to Vancouver. As Billy travels by plane, rail, road and boat, along windswept coastlines and across sweeping landscapes, we experience the final Northern frontier of the inhabited world for both man and beast. His adventure will embrace a memorable mix of bizarre encounters, Hemingwayesque characters, incredible wildlife, forgotten languages, big game hunting and all night carousing under the midnight sun.
