BBC Horizon: Antarctica - ice station rescue
A BBC Horizon documentary, which aired 7 June 2017, shows film maker Natalie Hewit spending 3 months in Antarctica as the team at Halley VI attempt to move its base 23km on the ice.
The world's most extreme moving job
Dubbed the world's most extreme moving job, Britain's Antarctic research base, Halley VI, was moved due to the base's proximity to a ginormous crevasse, which threatened to separate Halley from the rest of the continent, setting the £28 million base adrift on a massive iceberg.
