Map Man is a BBC documentary series first broadcast on BBC Two in 2004 and repeated in 2013. Each episode recounts a particular tale in the history of British cartography, with a particular emphasis on the individuals whose dedication and ingenuity led to the production of some of history's most ground-breaking maps. The show is presented by explorer and writer Nicholas Crane, each week travelling some distance by bicycle, water or on foot to recreate the often treacherous journeys taken in the creation of that episode's map.
In this short and compelling series, you'll learn just how important the art of mapmaking was when it came to shaping the history of humanity. Cartographers and historians will show you the most fundamental elements of the era of exploration, and how they have evolved over the centuries.
