THE HISTORY(R) CHANNEL TO PREMIERE ‘SHACKLETON’S ENDURANCE: THE LOST ICE SHIP FOUND’ A SPECIAL EPISODE OF THE ‘HISTORY’S GREATEST MYSTERIES’ PREMIUM DOCUMENTARY STRAND ON TUESDAY, MARCH 22 AT 10PM ET/PT FOLLOWING THE RECENT DISCOVERY

NEW SPECIAL WILL SERVE AS A DEFINITIVE LOOK AT SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON’S HISTORIC AND ILL-FATED 1914 ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION AND THE RELENTLESS MISSION TO FIND THE CENTURY-OLD SHIPWRECK

New York, NY – March 10, 2022 – Following recent news of the history-making discovery of Shackleton’s ship The Endurance, The HISTORY Channel sets premiere date for “Shackleton’s Endurance: The Lost Ice Ship Found” which will serve as a definitive look at Sir Ernest Shackleton’s historic and ill-fated 1914 Antarctic expedition resulting in the loss of his highly revered ship, Endurance, as well as maritime archaeologists’ relentless mission to find this holy grail of shipwrecks. This new 90-minute special will serve as a continuation of the network’s commitment to telling the complete Shackleton story following the previously aired “Endurance: The Hunt for Shackleton’s Ice Ship” which chronicled the first, ground-breaking expedition to locate the lost ship by the same leadership team on the same vessel in 2019. The two-hour doc which originally aired on November 28, 2020, as part of the network’s nonfiction strand “History’s Greatest Mysteries,” hosted and narrated by Academy Award(R) nominee and Emmy Award(R) winner Laurence Fishburne, was the result of two years of planning and over $250 million spent in cutting edge technology utilizing the same vessel — the S.A. Agulhas II — that many of the same crew are currently aboard when their news made international headlines this morning. “Shackleton’s Endurance: The Lost Ice Ship Found” premieres Tuesday, March 22 at 10 PM ET/PT on The HISTORY Channel and will air as a special installment of the “History’s Greatest Mysteries” premium documentary strand.

“As the documentarians of history, The HISTORY Channel has been at the forefront of telling the story of Shackleton and the Endurance for decades. Following this groundbreaking discovery by the Endurance22 expedition, this special will tell the complete story from the ill-fated voyage in 1914 to this week’s incredible find. We are thrilled to continue to chronicle the story of this legendary shipwreck and explorer,” said Eli Lehrer, Executive Vice President & Head of Programming for the HISTORY Channel.

In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton led an expedition to Antarctica in the hopes of being the first to cross the continent on foot but soon after arrival, Shackleton’s ship – Endurance – was destroyed by shifting glaciers, and he was tasked with leading his 27 men across the tundra, on an epic struggle for survival. Shackleton’s battle against the odds and his unfailing commitment to bring all his men out alive turned him into a legend that still inspires today. The Endurance is as illustrious as the Titanic, yet it had remained lost for over a century and its final resting ground had always remained as one of the greatest polar mysteries until this week when the Endurance22 expedition team made the announcement they successfully located the shipwreck of Shackleton’s famed Endurance.

Strand Kicks Off With ‘The Final Hunt For D.B. Cooper’ Chronicling An Expert Team As They Attempt to Solve the Only Unsolved Skyjacking in U.S. History

New York, NY – October 14, 2020 – The HISTORY(R) channel sets the premiere date for its new non-fiction programming strand “History’s Greatest Mysteries,” hosted and narrated by Academy Award(R) nominee and Emmy Award(R) winner Laurence Fishburne, which investigates a wide range of historically compelling topics and the mysteries that pervade each including the Titanic, Roswell, John Wilkes Booth and Sir Ernest Shackleton’s lost ice ship. Kicking off with “The Final Hunt for D.B. Cooper,” premiering Saturday, November 14 at 9PM ET/PT, each title within the franchise will showcase fresh, new evidence and perspectives including never-before-released documents to the public, personal diaries and DNA evidence to unearth new facts and information about these infamous and enigmatic chapters in history.

On November 24, 1971, a man calling himself Dan Cooper boarded Northwest Orient Airlines flight #305 in Portland bound for Seattle, wearing a dark suit and a black tie. While in the air, he opened his briefcase showing a bomb to the flight attendant and hijacked the plane. The plane landed in Seattle where he demanded $200,000 in cash, four parachutes and food for the crew before releasing all the passengers. With only three pilots and one flight attendant left on board, they took off from Seattle heading south. Shortly after takeoff, Cooper donned the parachute, tied the bank bag full of twenty-dollar bills to himself, lowered the rear stairs and, somewhere north of Portland, jumped into the night, never to be seen again. Although the FBI followed thousands of leads, this case has never been solved. As we approach the 49th anniversary, the mystery surrounding the whereabouts of Cooper has captivated a nation and continued to remain a pop culture obsession – inspiring songs, movies, tv shows and books. With over 7,500 hours investigating this mystery including analyzing evidence, interviewing witnesses, reading 20,000+ pages of FBI case files and exploring important locations, top D.B. Cooper expert, Eric Ulis, believes he’s found the true location where Cooper landed during his daring dive. In “The Final Hunt For D.B. Cooper,” he and his assembled team of specialists will head to the untouched Washington backcountry to hunt for missing evidence Cooper may have left behind. In addition, armed with new leads regarding the identity of Cooper, Eric works closely with a retired FBI agent as they set their sights on a living person of interest who could very well be the infamous D.B. Cooper.

Additional enigmas investigated as part of “History’s Greatest Mysteries” include a 108-year-old box filled with the investigative notes of Lord Mersey, the man tasked with leading the official inquiry into the sinking of the Titanic in “Titanic’s Lost Evidence” and in “Roswell: First Witness” a personal diary found in the belongings of Major Jesse Marcel, the first person to investigate the wreckage in Roswell, NM believed to contain coded clues to what really happened. Also in “The Escape of John Wilkes Booth” investigators now have access to 60 boxes of personal materials including marriage certificates and what is believed to be his will and, for the first time, will execute facial recognition as well as DNA testing to provide intel as to whether he died in a fire following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln or if he faked his death as many believed. Lastly, considered one of the most famous expeditions of the 20th century, Sir Ernest Shackleton and 27 men set sail on a disastrous mission to cross Antarctica in 1914 whereupon its arrival their ship sank under the ice. Led by maritime archeologist and shipwreck expert, Mensun Bound, the expedition chronicled in “Endurance: The Hunt For Shackleton’s Ice Ship” is the result of two years of planning and over $250 million spent in cutting edge technology to locate this holy grail of shipwrecks.
