The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne

From Academic Kids

The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne is a 22-episode science fiction television series in the steampunk genre that first aired in June 2000.

The plot concept is predicated on a vast fictional conspiracy beginning with the revelation that Jules Verne did not invent the stories behind his famous science fiction classic books Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth or Around the World in Eighty Days - but actually experienced these adventures.

A television technological historic footnote, this work was the first hour-long series filmed entirely in HDTV format.

The Aurora

The Aurora is at the heart of The Secret Adventure of Jules Verne. The world's first dirigible airship, property of Mr. Phileas Fogg of London, it combines unexampled luxury, total mobility and an extraordinary array of weapons and gadgets. It is to this series what the Starship Enterprise is to Star Trek: both a home base and the route to the world of adventure.
