Antarctic Expedition Star of 12-hour Slow TV Documentary
Pioneering small-ship expedition cruise company Heritage Expeditions iconic, 30-day Antarctica expedition, ‘In the Wake of Scott & Shackleton: Ross Sea Antarctica' has been captured in an epic, 12-hour Slow TV documentary Go Further South premiering at 7:30am on Good Friday (April 10, 2020) on New Zealand's Prime television station.
Heritage Expeditions General Manager David Bowen described the upcoming documentary, filmed aboard the company's purpose-built polar expedition vessel Akademik Shokalskiy during its 8 January 2020 departure, as essential viewing for anyone with an interest in Antarctica, its wildlife and history.
"Go Further South gives everyone who has ever dreamed of visiting Antarctica the opportunity to experience what it's like to follow in the footsteps of legendary explorers and step inside their historic huts, be amongst the ordered chaos of some of the world's largest penguin colonies, walk on the ice and marvel at some of the most spectacular scenery on the planet."
Long considered a true bucket list destination, Heritage Expeditions is one of the few operators exploring Antarctica's Ross Sea (and the most experienced after 30 years of operation), and invited production company Greenstone TV, creators of previous Slow TV show Go South, along on its authentic Antarctica expedition to capture the magic for this extraordinary documentary.
The 12-hour documentary will be followed by the premier of a condensed, 3-hour version of Go Further South. Both documentaries can also be screened live in New Zealand on Sky Go.
