    A father and son have to leave two younger children in the snow, while they go for help.
    I remember that the weather is sow bad, they cannot return to the children until weeks later??

    Fearing the worst, they are amazed to find them still alive???


    Please name the film!!!!

    I do remember a film like this where a family set out in a boat I think possibly along the West coast of Canada/Alaska and become shipwrecked due to bad weather.....
    I think the father & son? manage to get to a larger island with a log cabin where there is a radio but cannot get it too work......?
    In the spring or many weeks later they finally manage to get back to the other 2 children and are amazed to find them still alive, although suffering from frostbite....
    I think the film was made in the 1980's.....but can't remember the title........

    I just remembered they sailed out of Vancouver I think....

    Was it a film, or a documentary? Ray Mears did a documentary (slightly dramatised) about them in one of his series about survival against the odds
