ICE. EP.4 MORTALITY
Find out more about this item:
“What's going on in Antarctica? What are people doing there, and who's paying?
Ice is a new five-part series about the explorers, history, environment and animals - the reality of life in Antarctica.
Marcus Lush braves sub-zero temperatures to answer the burning questions; such as why does New Zealand maintain a base on the ice? Is it a lark...a holiday camp for scientists, or is it a serious place of research? Can you eat the biscuits in Shackleton's Hut, and what does penguin taste like?
The show also investigates and celebrates New Zealand's many connections with Antarctica - connections that go back over a century, connections that were particularly strong during the heroic era and those that are still strong between Christchurch and McMurdo Base and Scott Base on Ross Island." TVNZ; tvnz.co.nz; 14/08/2007
Lush discovers the history of Antarctic explorations setting off from Lyttelton in the 1900s by Scott and Shackleton and the tragedy of the Air NZ DC10 crash at Mount Erebus in 1979.
