Two hundred years ago vast expanses of the Arctic, Australian desert and central African jungle were virtually unknown to European explorers - literally great blanks on the map, their wildernesses places of unimaginable fear.

But explorers were to change that. Some brave, some learned, many greedy, most ill-prepared for what they were to face, they embarked on expeditions to test their mettle, seek riches, and to discover and lay claim to whole uncharted territories.

Wilderness Explored three-part documentary series telling the stories of early European explorers who reached the wildernesses of the Arctic Australia and the Congo.
