'Chasing Shackleton' focus of Perrysburg film discussion
PERRYSBURG - The PBS program "Chasing Shackleton" will be shown and discussed Jan. 16 at 10:30 a.m. at Way Public Library.
A new film follows an expedition that recreates Sir Ernest Shackleton's Trans-Antarctic Expedition, launched in 1914. A modern-day crew of five explorers attempts to duplicate Shackleton's epic sea-and-land voyage in a replica of the original explorers' lifeboat using only the tools and supplies his team used.
