Fair point. I thought rather an epic tale of heroic yet ultimately tragically futile endeavour. Very British.
 
For a more uplifting Antarctic story check out Ernest Shackleton - who incidently was a member of one of Scott's earlier expeditions. I've seen the James Caird at Greenwich - it's tiny, and a friend of mine was lucky enough to visit his grave on South Georgia.

 
.. and my great granddad was his stoker on an earlier voyage, got injured and went to NZ to convalesce, met the wild daughter of German immigrants and our line was born... I kid you not.

Until you have lost almost everything —- your ability to support yourself, the respect of your children, most of your worldly goods —- it's impossible to understand. I am an empty shell.
