Joining forces with Prince Harry, three teams of wounded servicemen and women undertake an extraordinary new Polar challenge.

Following the earlier expeditions led by the Walking With The Wounded charity, teams from the UK, the US and the Commonwealth, trek across the planet's most hostile environments, in a race to the South Pole. 

Against the stunning Antarctica backdrop, Harry's South Pole Heroes discovers inspiring and emotional stories, comrades in arms on the battlefield and now united again in their determination to overcome life-changing injuries. 

Each group's bravery, determination and unquenchable spirit is tested to unimaginable limits. Every step of this unique shared experience is captured as the battle reaches its climax, in this compelling two-part special.

The earlier expeditions made by the royal and charity in this trilogy are chronicled in Harry's Arctic Heroes and Harry's Mountain Heroes.

Reviews

"Harry’s South Pole Heroes didn’t just make you proud — it made you laugh. *****" Daily Mail

"But the light touch of the Prince’s presence, in this first episode of two, was not simply silly; it helped to focus the mind on the extraordinary stories of the other adventurers." Telegraph

"…the programme’s worth shone through in the time it spent getting to know the participants... their very presence and their participation in the race announced something unconquerable about the human spirit." Daily Express
