On Tuesday last week we went to Fortnum and Mason in Picadilly to film the event that they hosted for the Best of British South Pole 2010 Expedition. The Conference Reaction team were there too and they produced a record of the event.
There were three talks, first Dr Andrea Tanner gave a talk about the Fortnum and Mason archive for which she has responsibility. Then Jeremy Archer talked about his book Away at Christmas, available from Fortnum and Mason.
