Summary
One of Australia's most famous photographers and explorers, Frank Hurley, presents this absorbing film on the history of Australia's first expeditions to the Antarctic continent between 1911 and 1954. In the summer of 1911, a band of true pioneers set off from Hobart on the tall ship Aurora to an unknown land. Their send-off is captured in magnificent archival footage. Buffeted by blizzards, and with the ever-present threat of crevasses, they make Cape Dennison in Commonwealth Bay their base for a year. Hurley describes his subsequent expeditions to the region with Shackleton, Wilkins and Campbell. On Campbell's expedition in 1947 we see the establishment of scientific stations at Heard and Macquarie islands. In 1954, Hurley joined the expedition led by Phillip Law on the Danish ice-breaker, the Kista Dan. The ship is seen edging its way across the pack ice to the safety of the harbour where Mawson Station, the first permanent Australian post in the Antarctic, is established. A rare film which reveals the true hardship and courage of these early pioneers
