Outstanding retelling of the Shackleton story, with lots of original film and images
25 May 2020 | by richardspritzSee all my reviews

I know this story intimately, and I was a member of the National Geographic 2016 Shackleton Centennial South Georgia Expedition. This is an easy-to-watch retelling from the viewpoint of Frank Worsley, Captain of the Endurance. Lots of original film and photos. After you watch this, then read Shackleton's expedition book 'South'. How these guys survived is beyond my imagination!
