Discoverer is the documentary about the British Army Antarctic Expedition 2007 - 08. This was a three month, self-supported, land and sea-based expedition (sailing from and to the Falkland Islands via the notorious Drake Passage in a 67 foot yacht,) to the Danco Coast on the Antarctic Peninsula. They endured many forms of hardship - gales, blizzards, sub-zero temperatures, icebergs, uncharted and shallow waters, mechanical failure, personal injury and a serious crevasse incident, as well as living in very cramped conditions aboard their expedition base, the yacht - Discoverer. This documentary covers their progress as they continued to add to the exploration and field studies from previous expeditions, which includes famous polar explorer the late Sir Wally Herbert.
