South 2015 film premiere

Posted on

South 2015: a voyage to remember was premiered at the Royal Geographical Society 14 June 2017. The film describes the contribution that Britons have made in the exploration of British Antarctic Territory and the cost in lives lost. It follows the voyage of Antarctic veterans to attend the dedication of the Southern Antarctic Monument in February 2015 and thence to visit the places in the Antarctic Peninsula where those "who lost their lives in Antarctica in pursuit of science to benefit us all" lived, worked and perished. It covers the creation of the Antarctic Memorial in St Paul's Cathedral, the Antarctic Monument at the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge and its Southern counterpart on the waterfront in Stanley, Falkland Islands.

Felicity Aston MBE, Polar Medal introduced the film by video from Iceland. She is the first woman to ski across the Antarctic alone in 2014 and is leading a team of women from Europe and the Middle East on an expedition to the North Pole in April 2017: the Women's Euro-Arabian North Pole Expedition 2017.

Copies of the film are available at £15 including postage and packing from Brian Dorsett-Bailey
