WEA in Leicestershire

A site for members and volunteers, by volunteers

Scott film showing

The first WEA  Leicestershire showing of “The Great White Silence” took place in Loughborough yesterday evening, but don’t worry if you missed it, there’s another chance to see it in Leicester on 4th October, at the Phoenix.

The Loughborough audience members were fascinated by Herbert Ponting’s early efforts at wildlife photography, and amazed/amused to hear from Mike Wilson of the dangers and injuries that Ponting risked to get the footage. His great shots of the exuberant dog sled teams and the tough little ponies again showed his interest in all aspects of the expedition, not just the activity of the hardy explorers.
