On UK TV last night (9th Oct) was a documentary about Earnest Shackelton. During one part (they were messing around with the sledge dogs) there was some great Jazz fiddle being played - any one know who was playing it? Cheers Pete

Who knows what the powers may be
That cause a man to go,
Mindless of the dangers,
Out across the virgin snow?
Seduced by this ambition,
I easily forgot
The hopeless quest of Shackelton,
The dreamlike death of Scott
---Al Stewart

I have recorded it but have yet to watch it. I'll have a listen and take a look at the credits.

No, that was Oates and Scott of the Antartic..... different thing altogether. Read Les Barker on the subject....

It says music by Michael Small. The only other credit music wise is to Felix Mendelssohn. Don't think it was that?

I'M SO JEALOUS!!! The Popular Halfwith called to tell me about the Shakelton serries. He was a real hero of mine, when I was a ween - still is. I went with a friend from Dingle (where Sean Creane his ship mate was from, actualy Annascaul) to see the James Caird. It was a high point of my life to touch the stem of that remarkable piece of history. As Shackleton said, in his autobiography, about his reason (besides not putting another in risk) "I always was partial to a good row!"
Enjoy the show for me, and hope that when it comes State's side, it is not on cable so poor bastards like me can see it!
Salude!

Scott and Shackleton did not get on but were on one expedition together. More here. Glorious Falures.

This is a link to the Channel 4 site, with info on the film. HERE. There is a box on the site where you can ask them your question.

The Endurance is a great book! I could not put it down. One of Shackleton's men was the photographer for the trip. His photos were incredible and they actually survived the expedition. He sealed them in a tin can so they would be preserved. The photos are in this book. It is more like a coffee table picture book, quite expensive, but worth the purchase.

Can't seem to find any, has this bloke got any songs written about him?

If not maybe it's about time he did?

A biography of Tom Crean has just been published. At the launch in the SOuth Pole Inn in Annascaul,Frank Nugent apparently sang a newly composed song about Tom! Frank is a climber and singer who took part in the South Arís expedition last year which attempted to redo Shackletons journey from Elephant Island to South Georgia. His next project is a go at the North West passage!

Regards

p.s I'll get the song from him as soon as possibloe,
