Description Two hundred years ago, Matthew Flinders circumnavigated and surveyed the continent in a leaky and rotting ship, HMS Investigator, producing a map on which the word "Australia" was inscribed for the first time.
He is known as a sailor, navigator and mapmaker, but who was the real Matthew Flinders - the lover, the husband, the brother? How well did he navigate the reefs and shoals of his own nature?
A surprising portrait of a flawed and passionate man faced with the difficult decision between career and family.
