History DocumentariesJoin us on a captivating journey to the coldest and most inhospitable environment on Earth – Antarctica. We delve into the early 20th-century expeditions that set out to unravel the mysteries of this uncharted southern land, where temperatures can plummet to 100° below zero and winds can reach a staggering 200 mph. We will learn about the legendary explorer Ernest Shackleton and his adventurous spirit, drive for fame, and rivalry with fellow explorer Robert Scott. We will then head further back in time to a much earlier maritime explorer who changed the course of human history, Christopher Columbus. While he set the blueprint for future sea-borne exploration, he left untold suffering and centuries of colonization in his wake.
