Absolute first-rate photojournalism by a cameraman who had no reasonable expectation of survival." - Time Magazine
Narrated by Leo McKern (Rumpole of the Bailey), this is a compelling biography of a pioneer cameraman, war photographer, explorer, film director, writer, lecturer and broadcaster, Frank Hurley - one of the world's finest still photographers. From outback Australia to the deserts of the Middle East to Antarctica, this program shows his extraordinary skills and achievements.
Featured are compelling images from historic pioneering expeditions, including Sir Ernest Shackleton's legendary Antarctic Expedition. Also seen is Hurley's footage of his expedition to New Guinea, his coverage of WWI and WWII, and an excerpt from his foray into feature films with The Jungle Women in 1926.
In Black and white and Paget, an early color process, Hurley chronicled the (Shackleton) expedition's small story before its epic disasters." - National Geographic
