Abstract:

"Narrated by Leo McKern ('Rumpole of the Bailey'), this is a compelling biography of pioneer cameraman, war photographer, explorer, film director, writer, lecturer and broadcaster, Frank Hurley, one of the world's finest stills photographers.

Featured are three pioneering expeditions: the summer of 1911 Mawson's Antarctic Expedition with university graduates, the youngest party ever to set out for this mysterious region; the spectacular coverage of the famous Shackleton expedition; and his return to Antarctica in 1929 with Mawson via airplane. Also seen is Hurley's footage of Ross and Keith Smith's flight from London to Australia, his 1920's expedition to New Guinea, his coverage of WW I and WW II, and an excerpt from his foray into feature films with 'The jungle woman' in 1926"--Container.
