From Arts on Sunday, 1:31 pm on 10 November 2013

Sailor, journalist and biographer Rob Mundle on Captain James Cook and his legendary navigational skills. Over three remarkable voyages of discovery into the Pacific in the latter part of the eighteenth century, Cook unraveled the centuries-old mystery surrounding the existence of the great southern land, Terra Australis Incognita; became the first explorer to circumnavigate New Zealand and prove it comprised two main islands; discovered the Hawaiian Islands; and much more. Rob Mundle is the author of eleven books including the acclaimed Bligh and Flinders.
