Paul Young plays Dr John Rae in Tom Pow 's new play for radio.
The foremost Arctic explorer of his day, Rae was involved in the search for Sir John Franklin , who was lost 150 years ago with 129 men while searching for the Northwest Passage. Yet Rae was the only significant person involved who was not honoured with a knighthood. The drama is set in Berstane House, where Rae has retired. Director Hamish Wilson
