Operation Gold Rush with Dan Snow
The 19th century's last great stampede was sparked in 1896, when prospectors in remote north-west Canada discovered a new goldfield. Tens of thousands of fortune-seekers set off on a gruelling journey across hundreds of miles of frozen wilderness to the Klondike – but faced such brutal hardships that only one in three ever made it to their destination. Now, in his new BBC Two series, historian Dan Snow follows in the footsteps of those intrepid diggers in the Klondike gold rush.
