South of No North
A documentary celebrating the emergence of Australia's science city of the south which boasts the world's longest continuous association with Antarctica.
Hobart, Australia's smallest capital city, has long been an international gateway to Antarctica. Today, with the rapid changes in the technology of doing science, particularly the reliance on remote monitoring techniques, the city assumes an even greater role as interpreter of scientific information crucial to planetary survival.
Over the years, a unique science culture has developed that is integrated with an extraordinarily rich Antarctic heritage. In Hobart, science merges with popular culture in a community that makes an industry of interpreting Antarctica and its meaning for the planet. Why has this Antarctic community developed in Hobart? And what makes a great science city?
Narrated by distinguished geologist Prof. Patrick Quilty.
