An extraordinary story of leadership, courage and determination.
The most expensive and ambitious television drama ever made, Longitude director Charles Sturridge's two part film is not merely a recreation of Sir Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated journey to the South Pole in 1914. Starring Kenneth Branagh as Shackleton, it's a modern drama about a contradictory hero whose idiosyncratic leadership triumphs in the face of unbelievable adversity."I love the fight, and when things are easy, I hate it." - Sir Ernest Shackleton.
