The items in this series all have to do with the discovery of the wreck of the HMS Breadalbane. The Breadalbane sank on August 21, 1853 in the Canadian Arctic.\~It was a British re-supply vessel sent out in search of the Franklin Expedition that had disappeared in 1846.\~Despite the fact that the Breadalbane sank only 15 minutes after colliding with ice, there were no casualties. The entire crew was rescued by the Phoenix, which was traveling with the Breadalbane. The Breadalbane shipwreck was discovered in August of 1980 by Dr. Joe MacInnis and his team during their 3rd search expedition. Recordings made during that expedition are in varying stages of production, from the raw footage to complete television and radio interviews.
