Lost at Sea: The Search for Longitude

1998 Rated NR 54m

Until the 18th century, seafaring explorers, merchants and armies had to navigate the globe without longitude. One man changed all that: unassuming carpenter John Harrison, who developed the principles still used in modern navigation. Richard Dreyfuss narrates this fascinating documentary that reveals how Harrison's ingenuity saved lives and changed the way we see the world.
