The great grandson of famous explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton drives a car across the Antarctic to retrace his forebear's footsteps. Rough cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. British tech entrepreneur Patrick Bergel has become the first man to drive a car across the Antarctic, completing the feat 100 years after great-grandfather Ernest Shackleton failed to cross the icy continent on foot. Bergel encountered minus 28-degrees Celsius (minus 18F) temperatures during his 30-day trip across the 5,800km (3,600 miles) stretch in a five-door car fitted with extra large wheels and special snow tyres. The 46-year-old's modified 2.2 litre diesel car was engraved with the names of the crew members who accompanied his great grandfather on his failed bid to cross the Antarctic in 1916-1917.
