It follows the journeys of two exploration ships as they sail with men and supplies from Australia to Antarctica to set up the first permanent scientific stations on both Heard and Macquarie Islands. It begins with the naval ship LST 3501 departing Fremantle and follows her stormy ocean crossing, difficult landing, and the construction of the permanent huts which are to house 15 men for 15 months. Using flying boats such as the Walrus and the Kingfisher, the men are able to send out reconnaissance parties to determine the route ahead. The film also depicts the voyage of the Wyatt Earp from Melbourne to Antarctica and back via Macquarie Island, observing scientific work on board, as well as the stunning Antarctic landscape and wildlife."--CoverFri Mar 21 15:26:07 EDT 2014batch6856
