AN OUTSTANDING, UNSUNG BBC SHACKLETON FILM
The Recent success of both the IMAX and the Channel 4 Shackleton films has somewhat eclipsed a fine earlier Shackleton feature film made by BBC TV in association with The Entertainment Channel, Seven Network Australia and Television New Zealand.
Now that terrific film has, at long last, received its due by being released on DVD.
It is available on Amazon UK pric £12.99 The URL is: www.amazon.co.uk/Shackleton-Complete-DVD-David-Schofield/dp/B01N7K6WHM/ref=sr14?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1483707034&sr=1-4&keywords=shackleton
In particular, Ralling's film made strenuous efforts to do justice to the boat journey aboard the James Caird and the mountain crossing of South Georgia, neither of which, some have suggested, felt wholly satisfactory in more recent versions such as the Imax and Endurance films.
