It searched for the mythical Northwest Passage. It clashed with American interests during the War of 1812. It even had a hand in the division of Oregon. This program chronicles the epic history of the Hudson's Bay Company, the world's oldest continuous commercial enterprise still in existence. Adapted from Peter C. Newman's best-seller and narrated by former NewsHour anchor Robert MacNeil, this story of exploration and exploitation uses stunning photography as well as paintings, drawings, maps, journals, and memoirs to tell the company's story in the authentic voice of the people who were a part of it.
