John will introduce and screen Antarctica –Footprints on a Frozen Continent, a 35 minute video put together from photos from his first field season as one of two grad students with VUWAE 15 studying the Beacon Sandstone. Like the book he published in 1975, it covers the geography and geologic history, the wildlife, the marvels of the Dry Valleys and Erebus Volcano, and the field life of scientists in those days.
