Lizzie Meek presents the Antarctic Heritage Trust which cares for a collection of simple, wooden expedition bases, filled with everyday objects. A life-changing experience for many of the people who visit them in Antarctica, they also strongly resonate with people who will never visit – because they are, despite the odds, still standing. Six minutes on the power of place, and the value of heritage in its original context.
This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 16, 2015.
