Billy tells us the gripping story of his adventures in some of the remotest parts of the world. In the summer of 2008 Billy Connolly set sail on a ten-week journey from ocean to ocean: from the Atlantic to the Pacific, by way of the North West Passage a fabled route deep within the Arctic Circle that has thwarted explorers and fortune-hunters for centuries. For Cook, Drake and countless other adventurers, the North West Passage was an alluring but impossible journey, a trial of unparallelled physical and mental strength, a haunting and fascinating wilderness. Today the melting of the polar icecaps makes it accessible for the first time. Billy's adventure embraces a memorable mix of bizarre encounters, Hemingway-esque characters, incredible wildlife, forgotten languages, big game hunting and all night carousing under the midnight sun.
