Shackleton Centenary Expedition

Excess Baggage



Some early history on how we got here,

The planning for the Expedition began shortly after Will Gow appeared in Radio 4's 'Excess Baggage' of October 2005, where he anounced his desire to re-enact the 1909 Nimrod Expedition. Team-members soon got on board after family members heard the broadcast... which goes to show that radio still gets the required results even in the internet era. Thanks go to Sandi Toksvig and crew.
