Full Description

Colour 58 mins. NFU Film Information Sheet No. 640 Cat. Ref. 1986-87 p.14. Situated in the Southern Ocean between New Zealand and Antarctica, these five groups of tiny islands are among the most remote and wild on Earth. 'Beyond The Roaring Forties' tells the story of this unique nature reserve, a history of sealing and whaling, of shipwreck and marooned castaways and of man's doomed efforts to settle and farm. The Antipodes, Bounty, Snares, Campbell and Auckland Islands are some of the world's last few natural environments unmodified by man, an isolated haven for many unique species of birds, marine mammals and plants.
