Three adventurers, Jock Wishart, Duncan Nicoll and
Jonathan Chastney, are stepping back 84 years
in time to recreate for television part of Sir Ernest
Shackleton's adventure on South Georgia island,
a chapter of History that has become one of the most
heroic survival stories of all time.
With close attention to realism they will wear replicas
of Shackleton's original Burberry Gabardine clothing
as they recreate the treacherous route over ice-bound peaks,
glaciers and snowfields, recording footage for the TV
production company, Tiger Aspects, who is developing
the first ever documentary of the crossing
for global broadcasting.
