Expedition to the End of the World

Inspired by all things Arctic after last year's sail, and having a hankering to return to those northern waters to see some ice, my eye was naturally drawn to the documentary on BBC4 this evening called "Expedition to the End of the World".

It describes the voyage of an old three masted schooner to North East Greenland, sometimes called the forbidden coast given the warnings in the old Admiralty pilots about avoiding this shore.

Onboard are scientists and artists, out to explore the melting glaciers and remote fjords of this wonderful part of the world.

You can watch a trailer on Vimeo here.
