An excellent article has been published on the BBC website about the expedition.
We have also received some great video footage from New Zealand (see below). This was taken by a film crew from LEARNZ making an educational film about drilling in the ice for environmental samples, when along came our team of explorers! It was shot at Cape Evans on Day 2 of the expedition.
LEARNZ is a New Zealand educational programme that provides virtual field trips to all NZ schools (for free) thanks to funding from their Ministry of Education and other corporate clients.
There was also coverage on NZTV which you can see here.
