SHACKLETON NEWS ARCHIVE

Christopher Ralling's splendidly researched and directed film Shackleton has now at last been made available on DVD
The film can now be bought from Amazon at www.amazon.co.uk/Shackleton-Complete-DVD-David-Schofield/dp/B01N7K6WHM/ref=sr14?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1483707034&sr=1-4&keywords=shackleton , price £12.99
As an alternative method of accessing the film, via YouTube, John Atkins writes:
Members and Shackleton enthusiasts may want to know that two of the four parts of the in many respects brilliant 1983 BBC2 TV drama Shackleton, written and directed by Christopher Ralling (and previously mentioned on the JCS website), have now been posted on YouTube.
They are: Episode 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16RmWaHYFrk
and Episode 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iotptQeXCs4
John asserts, 'This Shackleton series from the early 1980s is first class in so many ways it really ought to be released on DVD, especially as the same production team's The Voyage of Charles Darwin (1978) has recently been released to acclaim.'
I hope this is of interest and useful.
