        In 1914 on the eve of the First World War, Sir Ernest Shackleton (Kenneth Branagh) set out to be the first to cross the South Pole Continent, his expedition was a failure but has gone down in history as the greatest survival story of all time.

        This spectacular film by award-winning writer/director Charles Sturridge (Longitude, Gulliver's Travels) tells for the first time the true story of the events leading up to the expedition and charts in graphic detail the lives of the twenty eight men after their ship was crushed and sunk, forcing Shackleton to lead them to safety across the ice, the sea and finally the uncharted mountains of South Georgia.


        Filmed in London and on the sea-ice off Eastern Greenland over a six-month period, this two-part drama begins in London in 1914. The epic adventure begins with the explorer attempting to raise funds for his expedition on the eve of the First World War - as well as struggling with a complex personal life and his brother's imprisonment for fraud - and ends on the frozen wastes of the Antarctic.
