This is an edited sound recording of the Hon Alexandra Shackleton, grand-daughter of the Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. She recounts aspects of his leadership of a 1907-09 expedition to Antarctica, relating how, for the sake of the survival of his team, he abandoned his bid to be the first to reach the geographic South Pole and won the lifelong allegiance of one crew member for giving him his biscuits when they both faced starvation. The recording was made in November 2005 and lasts for 1 min 14 s.
