Shackleton Centenary Expedition

Kenneth Brannagh's Shackleton


In 2000 the British TV station Channel 4 created a two-part drama about Sir Ernest Shackleton's 1914 Endurance Expedition to the South Pole. It was written and produced by Charles Sturridge, with Kenneth Branagh playing Sir Ernest Shackleton (below).


Without wanting to spoil the plot, we think it's well worth watching. You can now do so online by going to the Channel 4 on Demand website. There, after registering and downloading the relevant application you can either stream it to your pc or download it and watch it at a later date.

We think that after watching it you'll understand a little better why we're doing what we're doing.
