Shackleton: Death or Glory

Earlier this year, the ‘Shackleton Epic’ crew, led by modern-day explorer Tim Jarvis, attempted to recreate Ernest Shackleton’s 800-mile Antarctic voyage from Elephant Island to South Georgia using a replica of the explorer’s original boat and challenging themselves to only use the equipment that would have been available to Shackleton, almost 100 years ago.

Shackleton: Death or Glory airs in 4-parts on Discovery on Thursday at 9pm from 24th October.
