Chasing Shackleton

http://www.pbs.org/program/chasing-shackleton/

Just a quick and rare mid-week post to alert my readers that PBS is airing a three-part special “Chasing Shackleton” about a modern-day attempt to recreate the famous 1916 journey of Ernest Shackleton from Antarctica to South Georgia Island to effect the rescue of his stranded crew.

You can read more about “The Boss” in my earlier blog posting “A Toast to Sir Ernest Shackleton”

A fascinating look at what the typical Antarctic tourist will never experience!
