Rockhopper returns to Antarctica

Rockhopper is back in Antarctica filming at the historic WWII Port Lockroy base, which is becoming Antarctica's most popular tourist attraction. 

 

It's our 6th visit to the sub-continent and we're combining our own archive footage of Port Lockroy with 1940's footage owned by the British Antarctic Survey to tell the base's history.  It was built as a top-secret British operation during World War II, converted to science research in the 1950s and 60s, and is now run by the British Antarctic Heritage Trust.
