Produced by: Andrew Dodd
A small cairn of stones on a hill above the harbour of the South Georgia Island marks the resting place of the Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. His Edwardian-era exploits are currently being celebrated again with much of the same enthusiasm as they were over 80 years ago. Shackleton and two others completed one of the most astonishing feats of seamanship - a 16-day voyage from Elephant Island to South Georgia in an open boat, a distance of 800 nautical miles through the worst seas in the world. We visit the sites of Shackleton's achievements with a group of Shackleton fans, and attempt to understand his continuing allure.
