Monster iceberg's pivot and turn

The monster Antarctic iceberg A-68 looks finally to be on the move.

For 13 months after breaking away from the White Continent's long peninsula, the trillion-tonne block did little more than shuffle back and forth on the spot.

Now its southern end has swung round almost 90 degrees. This movie captures its history so far.
