'Beyond Endurance' - Shackleton drama due to air on BBC Radio 4
Dominic West (The Wire) stars as Ernest Shackleton in Meredith Hooper's play, airing in early April. 'Beyond Endurance' focuses on the Elephant Isle lives of Shackleton's 22 marooned men and uses only the actual words of the characters involved through their diaries, accounts and journals.
Written by UKAHT Trustee Meredith Hooper, an award-winning writer, historian, lecturer and broadcaster who specialises in the Antarctic. This year she is also curating a major exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society in London on Shackleton's Endurance Expedition.
'Beyond Endurance' airs on BBC Radio 4 on Wednesday 8th April at 14.15 and will be available on the BBC website shortly after broadcast.
