BT are about to mark a historical first with the announcement that they will be premiering the very first episode of AMC’s The Terror, for free, on YouTube.

Inspired by a true story, “The Terror” centres on the Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into uncharted territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage. Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction. Frozen, isolated and stuck at the end of the earth, “The Terror” highlights all that can go wrong when a group of men, desperate to survive, struggle not only with the elements but with each other.
