Lost at Sea: The Search for Longitude

by Peter Jones

About this title: Before global positioning systems, modern map-making--even before America was America--the concept of longitude was just a dream. Without its guidance, navigation in the 1700's was both unpredictable and deadly. This Nova episode is a dramatic recreation of longitude's birth, and the remarkable life of a humble carpenter named John Harrison who is known as the "father of longitude."
