Antarctic ship: 'Good fun' on stranded Russian ship

A crew member aboard the Russian ship, which has been stranded off East Antarctica since Tuesday, has recorded a video diary of his journey.

Terry Gostlow, part of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, said it was "fun" on board the Akademik Shokalskiy.

He made the recording on 30 December, before an Australian icebreaker trying to reach the Russian scientific mission ship was forced to turn back due to bad weather.
