For a more uplifting Antarctic story check out Ernest Shackleton - who incidently was a member of one of Scott's earlier expeditions. I've seen the James Caird at Greenwich - it's tiny, and a friend of mine was lucky enough to visit his grave on South Georgia.

 
I saw a really good exhibition on Shackleton last time I was at The National Museum at Collins Barracks, Dublin
There was a ship on display in the courtyard but I don't recall if it was related or not.

.. and my great granddad was his stoker on an earlier voyage, got injured and went to NZ to convalesce, met the wild daughter of German immigrants and our line was born... I kid you not.
