Episode 05 - Baily Head, Antarctica (Deception Island)
Recorded in February 2012
I want to show you some of these phenomenal remote spots that I'm incredibly lucky to visit on my expeditions and make them feel as real as possible to share the experience.
So I've decided that maybe the best way to do this is strip down the video, with raw footage only, no music, no David Attenborough, no fancy editing and no touching up. As it was on the day.
And maybe, with no one telling you what to think and no music to stir the emotions, maybe it will be quite refreshing, and a lot more real?
Deception Island is an island in South Shetland off the Antarctic Peninsula, which has one of the safest harbours in Antarctica. The island is the caldera of an active volcano, which caused serious damage to the local scientific stations in 1967 and 1969. The island previously held a whaling station; it is now a tourist destination and scientific outpost, with research bases being run by Argentina and Spain. Various countries have previously asserted sovereignty, but it is now administered under the Antarctic Treaty System.
