Dan Snow will give a dramatic personal account of History Hit's experiences on the Falkland Maritime Heritage Society's Endurance 22 expedition to find Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship Endurance in one of the most inhospitable and marginal places on Earth. After a month of searching the vast frozen wilderness of the Weddell Sea, time was running out, so when the live video feed from the undersea probe finally picked up the shape of something man-made on the seabed, they were exultant. Endurance was the principal ship used by the Imperial Trans-Antarctic expedition but became stuck in pack ice in the Weddell Sea on January 18, 1915‚ where she and her crew would remain until the ship was crushed and ultimately sank on November 21, 1915.
