FALKLANDS SERIES PREMIERE!
The crew of Hit and Run History leaves their home on Cape Cod to return once again to the track of the Columbia Expedition. As a Falklands Island Radio Service interview plays, we follow the intrepid Gumshoe Historians on their journey south. We hear HRH’s plans in the Falklands, and what brought Columbia there in February of 1788.
During a brief layover in Santiago, they meet University of Chile History Department Head Celia Cussen. Then it is back to the skies, with HRH winging their way down to Punta Arenas in Patagonia, then east to the Falklands, and finally a long, rugged drive from the airport at Mount Pleasant across a vast, barren landscape to the capital of Stanley.
It's going to be a long week.
