PSIP Description: 
A look at the forces that led to the voyages of Christopher Columbus and their effect on our world.
Long Description: 
When Christopher Columbus left Spain he thought he would reach China or Japan. When he got to the Caribbean he had no idea of where he was and when he got home to Spain he had no idea of where he had been. And yet he has ended up as one of the most celebrated explorers in the world-a constant reminder that you can become famous and not have a clue. But Chris' lack of insight does not detract from the enormous impact his voyages had on the history of the world. This program looks at the forces that led to the voyages of Columbus and their continuing effect on our world.
