Shackleton’s Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition needed to be – and was – news. Expedition funding required publicity. Rights, sold in advance, raised essential cash. The book, the film, the lectures circuit, were all essential to the business of expeditions in 1914. Meredith Hooper, Curator of the Royal Geographical Society’s ‘Enduring Eye’ Exhibition celebrating the Centenary of Shackleton’s Endurance Expedition, looks at some of the pressures on the telling of what turned into an extraordinary story.
