Last year, polar explorer Tim Jarvis and a crew of five successfully recreated Sir Ernest Shackleton's incredible Antarctic survival journey: an 800 nautical mile boat journey across the treacherous Southern Ocean, followed by a 32-mile overland trek—all without the aid of modern-day clothing or equipment.
Chasing Shackleton airs Wednesdays, January 8 – 22 at 10 PM EST on PBS. The companion book, Chasing Shackleton: Re-creating the World’s Greatest Journey of Survival, by Tim Jarvis, is available now (William Morrow; 2014).
