Anthony Powell - 10 years in Antarctica

Anthony Powell has just spent his tenth winter over in Antarctica.

He worked for many years as a telecommunications engineer before becoming a full-time filmmaker and photographer. He had to design and build a lot of his own camera equipment to withstand the harsh conditions of the deep Antarctic winters. He made the international award-winning film "Antarctica: A Year on Ice" and has contributed footage to numerous films, TV shows, and exhibitions. These include National Geographic, Discovery, US Natural History Museum, and the Emmy Award winning BBC series Frozen Planet.

Anthony will talk about his experiences living in Antarctica, how the bases have evolved over time, and his own personal journey to becoming a full-time filmmaker
