The Greatest Survival Story Of All Time.

Disc Two:
After ten months in the ice, the Endurance is finally crushed and sinks. Castaway on the floes with three small boats and what supplies they could salvage and carry, the crew drifts for another five months before finally landing on the uninhabited outcrop of Elephant Island.

Their only hope for survival is to sail to the Stromness whaling station on South Georgia Island. With five other men. Shackleton successfully makes the 800-mile journey across some of the world's most dangerous waters. But a final challenge remains before rescue can be arranged - trekking 22 miles across the island's mountainous, uncharted interior to Stromness.

Based on the detailed diaries and first-person accounts of expedition members, Shackleton is the true story of the greatest adventure from the age of polar exploration. Written and directed by Charles Sturridge (Longitude, Brideshead Revisited), this A&E Original Movie stars Kenneth Branagh (Henry V, Hamlet) as the legendary explorer.
