Brian Blessed visits
In the summer of 2001 (January), we had a special guest arrive at McMurdo Station!
Not only is he an incredibly cool actor with an impressive stature and a booming
voice to match, Brian Blessed is also quite an adventurer (he's attempted
to conquer Mount Everest three times), so he came down to see what things were
like at the Polus Antarcticus. He's a very good sport, too; he cheerfully
accepted our invitation to put on some garb and join us at our January revel.
Here are some snapshots of that memorable event.
