About The Show

250 years after Captain James Cook began his epic exploration of the Pacific, Sam Neill journeys in his wake uncovering stories that resonate from those times from both sides of the beach. Visiting the islands and lands where Cook went and meeting the descendants of the people Cook met, Sam explores the trials and triumphs, disasters and delights that followed. Was Cook an instrument of imperial expansion or an enlightened explorer? Whether admired or admonished, Captain James Cook is forever linked to the Pacific, its heritage and its future.

Uncharted With Sam Neill is made with the support of NZ On Air
