Quests are amazing. Tenacious quests? Even better.

But what happens when that quest to uncover the story of one of the Greatest Polar Explorers takes 7 years and requires all of your tenacity and determination?

Angie Butler has been there. And this week she tells us the incredible story of her journey to uncover the unsung hero of the heroic age of Antarctic exploration: Frank Wild.

It’s about what happens when you step into the unknown and stretch yourself — important lessons learned from embarking on your own quest.

It’s about the story of one of the greatest polar explorers from the Edwardian times and the legacy he has left behind.

And it’s about tenacity, determination, achievement and opportunities that adventure brings to you.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this powerful, reflective exchange with the inspiring Angie Butler.

Frank Wild's last journey

Sir Ernest Shackleton has a heroic place in the annals of Antarctic exploration, famously for his expedition on the aptly-named Endurance in 1914. He intended to cross over the Antarctic landmass. Instead, his ship became stuck in ice which eventually crushed it. Shackleton and his crew made a desperate voyage in three small boats to Elephant Island, where they split up. The men on the island were left under the command of Shackleton's Number 2, Frank Wild. Shackleton and a small team sailed 800 miles to South Georgia, from where they mounted a rescue mission for Wild's group.
Nearly a century on, reporter Karen Bowerman joins a group of Wild's relatives retracing his extraordinary journey to the southern seas. They are bearing Wild's ashes, which they bury next to Shackleton, on South Georgia.
Producer: John Murphy.
