Heroic explorers Inspire a new generation

The Antarctic Heritage Trust’s Inspiring Explorers Expedition 2015 to South Georgia Island left on 16 October 2015. TV3’s Isobel Ewing interviewed inspiring explorer Tom MacTavish in his home town of Moeraki, New Zealand, and looked back at what Shackleton, Crean and Worsley accomplished 100 years ago, crossing South Georgia Island to rescue the men of the Endurance.

On 13 October 2015 a function was held at the British High Commission in Wellington, New Zealand to farewell the Trust’s expedition. Hosted by the British High Commissioner and the Consulate General of Ireland, TVNZ was there to capture the story.
