Michael C. Tarver - The Heroic Age of Polar Exploration

Wed 10 Oct

19:00

In the 150th year since the birth of Captain Scott, Michael Tarver makes a detailed analysis of his tragic polar expedition to discuss if Scott could have been saved. In a two-part illustrated programme the first half deals with the British attempts to reach the South Pole by Scott and Shackleton and are compared with Amundsen’s success. After the interval enjoy a viewing of the 45 minute film 'The Crossing of Antarctica' detailing the Trans-Antarctic Expedition 1957-1958, led by Sir Vivian Fuchs with Sir Edmund Hilary and featuring excerpts from Vaughan Williams’ 'Symphonia Antarctica'.
