Antarctica - Ice Station Rescue - December 2, 2017
Britain's state of the art Antarctic research base, Halley VI, is in trouble. Built on the Brunt Ice Shelf, it sits atop a massive slab of ice that extends far beyond the Antarctic shoreline. The ice is breaking apart, and just six kilometres from the station is a ginormous crevasse, which threatens to separate Halley from the rest of the continent, setting the $48 million base adrift on a massive iceberg. Halley needs to move, but this is probably the toughest moving job on Earth, and the team of 90 who have been tasked with the mission aren't just architectural or engineering experts. The're plumbers, mechanics and farmers from across the UK and beyond - ordinary men and women on an extraordinary adventure. Embedded with the team, BBC filmmaker Natalie Hewit spent three months living on the ice, following these everyday heroes as they battle in the most extreme environment on Earth to move this vital polar research station.
