The Secret of Scott’s Hut BBC2 this Sunday

On BBC2 at 8pm this Sunday “The Secret of Scott’s Hut” presented by Ben Fogle  (Please follow this link for more information http://www.ukaht.org/index.html ) promises to be an interesting watch for all, who like us, are fascinated by the heroric age of polar exploration.

We are hopeful that this and other press coverage, will increase awareness of, and interest in, the centenary of Scott’s ill-fated Terra Nova expedition, as for many months we have been putting together exciting plans to create a new permanent exhibition to celebrate the life of Captain Oates who accompanied Scott and who heroically lost his life after uttering the famous words ‘I am just going outside and may be some time.’

We plan to launch this exhibition in time for the 100th anniversary of Oates death on 17th March 2012, and have already received very generous support from the Heritage Lottery Fund in the form of a Your Heritage grant, and match funding from the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust but fundraising is ongoing for those individuals and organisations who wish to support us. We are keen to include strong educational and interactive elements if we are able to further boost our funds, so please support us if you can by helping us to raise awareness of this worthwhile and exciting project!
