The journey to Halley

I return to Halley research station on the Brunt Ice Shelf, Antarctica.  This will be the final year for me filming the Halley VI build.  Hopefully they get it finished.

We head to Halley via a new route for us through Punta Arenas, Chile to Union glacier in the Ellesworth mountains. A commercial camp where Di Gilbert and Heather Morning used to work and where Riet (Chef), Rob Smith(Camp Manager/guide) and Celine Met work who you might have seen in a few other films of mine.

The film shows us arriving and the start of our entrapment due to weather.
