2. Antarctic Pioneers

"Recommended. This program documents in black and white film footage 3 expeditions to Antarctica from Australia between 1911 to 1954; it is narrated by Frank Hurley, who was the film photographer on all of these expeditions; he died one week after this film was made in 1954. Hurley was along on all of these expeditions as photographer and chronicler, and his narration of his own film footage is extremely interesting and historical." -EMRO Review
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 Screen Australia. B&W. 07/11DE JSCA 30 min.
