LUNCHTIME LECTURE - The Greatest Survival Story Ever Told

6 February 2012

Be transported back to a heroic age with the National Maritime Museum Cornwall's Lunchtime Lecture.

LUNCHTIME LECTURE - The Greatest Survival Story Ever Told
6 Feb, 12.30pm 

On his return from Shackleton’s ill-fated Endurance Expedition, Dr Leonard Hussey toured Britain giving a lecture about his incredible experiences.

Join Geoff Selley as he recreates this lecture from Dr Hussey’s original notes, as if he were Dr Hussey himself.  The talk is accompanied by slides reproduced from the original ‘magic-lantern’ slides of the expedition taken by Frank Hurley, the expedition photographer.

The lecture goes back in an unbroken line nearly eighty years and, with the eerie glow of the magic lantern slide show, the listener will be transported back to the heroic age of Antarctic Exploration.
