British ice station on the move

Filmmaker Natalie Hewit spent three months recording the relocation of the UK's Halley research station in the Antarctic.

Her film, for the BBC's Horizon series, follows the epic effort to drag the space-age complex more than 20km across the ice sheet.

Antarctica - Ice Station Rescue is broadcast on BBC Two on Wednesday, 7 June, at 21:00 BST.
