Having just returned from Antarctica myself I was inspired to buy this video. It's factually correct details and the story of the heroics involved made the film gripping from start to finish. Despite the fact it appears the whole venture could have been avoided when Shackleton was warned of heavy ice that particular year, it makes one wonder if it was all necessary. And in actual fact knowing he made the conscious decision to set out nearly cost the lives of him and his men. Nevertheless, it is an amazing story of survival and heroics and definitely worth watching if you have the slightest interest in Antarctica or Shackleton.
