Falklands Ho! on WGBH

Turn it UP.

Join Cape Cod's interpid Gumshoe Historians on WGBH in a few short weeks as we head deep into the Southern Atlantic for our third installment. The adventure of a lifetime continues. Hit and Run History: The Columbia Expedition follows the first American voyage 'round the world down to the Falklands, 300 miles east of the tip of South America.

In planes, trains, automobiles and boats, our crew ranges across the islands, tracking the shipboard violence and treacherous weather that sent a 19-year old sailor cowering in a cave amongst the penguins and ruins 7,000 miles from home.
