The recent discovery and filming of Frankin's HMS 'Terror' has brought the tragic story of the expedition into the international spotlight. The only man who knows the true narrative is Ernest Coleman.

"Ernest Coleman’s story of his search for clues to Franklin’s fate is delightfully prejudiced and pugnacious."

Coleman’s shoestring expeditions place him in the great tradition of explorers. He scours the wilderness, mostly alone and on foot, reads everything and comes to conclusions about the fate of the expedition that are just as plausible as those of the formally qualified people who probably laugh at him. He deserves a biopic.
