The Worst Journey in the World

Join us as we hear about this incredible journey to the world's coldest continent, all in the name of science.

In the dark midwinter of 1911, three men embarked on a horrific 140-mile journey in Antarctica, the world's coldest continent, to recover Emperor penguin eggs. Their voyage will be forever immortalised as ‘The Worst Journey in the World’. Join us as we find out why they were prepared to suffer so much and hear about the embryos they went all that way to retrieve.
