History's Lost & Found James Caird Episode
History's Lost & Found is a show that talks about various historic artifacts. In Episode 54 one of the artifacts they talk about is the James Caird, which was the life boat that Shackleton used to get to the South Georgia Islands and get help for his men stranded in Antarctica after the Endurance sank. The episode is kind of interesting although the segment is only a few minutes of the 30 minute episode. It basically tells the story of the historic event and then tells about what happened to the boat after that up until where it is today. By the way today it is at Dulwich College in London, England.
History's Lost & Found still airs episodes every Sunday at 3am and 3:30am, so eventually this episode may replay. I had recorded early this summer. Currently only the first episode of this series is on DVD, but maybe someday they will release the whole series.
