An important companion program to The Life and World of Frank Hurley, this documentary was directed and narrated by the world-famous photographer, Frank Hurley, who re-tells the stories, as only he could, of Antarctic expeditions from 1911 to 1954.
Utilizing never-before-seen archival footage and photographs, Captain Hurley describes expeditions in 1911 with Douglas Mawson and Sir Ernest Shackleton, in 1928 with Sir Hubert Wilkins, and in 1954 with Philip Law aboard the ice-breaker, the Kista Dan, to establish Mawson as a permanent station.
This is a rare film that reveals the true hardship and courage of early Antarctic pioneers.
Produced by Film Australia.
