Shackleton expedition DVD for Tuesday

11 April 2005

Don't forget to diarise the showing of a DVD, based on the Imax film of Sir Ernest Shackleton's Antarctic expedition of 1914 to 1917. This will be shown on Tuesday, April 12, at 19h30 in Lecture Theatre A of the RW James Building.

The DVD includes original photographs taken by Australian Frank Hurley. Last year marked the 90th anniversary of the expedition. Hosted by the physics department, the event will be presented by Unique Destinations.

Based on Hurley's original prints, an Imax production was made five years ago but has never been shown in South Africa. Unique Destinations, a company specialising in polar voyages, has procured the DVD based on the Imax film and will share it with the UCT community.
