Honoring Sir Ernest Shackelton

By Steve

Comments about PBS Chasing Shackleton DVD:

I only caught small segments of this series on my local PBS channel and it caught my immediate interest. I am very interested in this type of adventure, as is my son. I had to have this DVD, to see the entire version and also to send it to my son. This is extremely well done, you can almost share the experience as it is happening. My son will love it.

Chasing Shakleton DVD

By Kerrith

Comments about PBS Chasing Shackleton DVD:

I didn't even know the story of Shakleton's amazing journey and leadership until a few years ago. When I saw that I could get this on my server, I watched it - all at once, as I could not stop! I then bought the set for my son and his three young boys, as it is one of the TOP documentaries I've ever seen about when folks can and will do when faced with the unbelievable challenges these men faced. The story, relived by these men and documented step by step, truly made me feel as if I were doing myself. The one fellow, commenting that he'd never felt closer to Shackleton and his men and that he felt as if he were TRULY living in history hit me very strongly. I can't recommend this enough - it was spectacular!

Saga of bewildering human perseverence

By Terry the terrible

from Pultneyville, NY

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Chasing Shackleton DVD:

Tale of today's men who are time traveled back 100 years to replicate the rescue mission of Sir Ernest Shackleton, with the same technology and advances that existed in 1914. The human dimension is the only variable.
The film accurately depicts the weaknesses and frailties of man that Shackleton overcame. A true hero, it's doubtful that an undertaking anything close to his rescue could be repeated, ever!
