[edit] Information

Shackleton: Death or Glory In 1916, Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Trans-Antarctic Expedition met with disaster when his ship The Endurance sank in the Antarctic. His heroic leadership saved the lives of 27 men stranded for more than 500 days, and has inspired explorers and leaders over many generations. Renowned Australian adventurer, scientist and author Tim Jarvis and his crew of five explorers set out to replicate this astonishing voyage in a replica of Shackleton’s boat, using only the tools and supplies the original team used. Shackleton: Death or Glory documents the gruelling trip in three gripping parts, as Jarvis and the group test themselves against the roughest ocean on the planet, deadly crevasse field and impossible climbs in one of the last wildernesses on Earth.
