In the 18th century, the spectacular and world-famous hunt for longitude began - something that could save the lives of thousands of sailors every year. Scientists and churchmen alike had long tried in vain to map the earth's deadly waters - but then a humble, cautious man emerged from the shadows with a provocatively simple proposal. For thirty years the carpenter John Harrison had to fight for his ingenious invention the chronometer - today better known as the clock - a stubborn life and death battle.
