Busy do­ing noth­ing

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Opinion -

What the pho­tog­ra­pher wanted to do was show how every­one was still busily en­gaged, de­spite be­ing trapped.

So, you see them read­ing and con­duct­ing sci­en­tific ex­per­i­ments – al­though quite what ex­per­i­ments they could do while stuck in the ice when it’s to­tally dark out­side, I’m re­ally not sure.

It all seems a bit of a fudge, but the in­ten­tion was to por­tray an up­beat pic­ture. It’s a bit of ex­pe­di­tion pro­pa­ganda.

The light in the mid­dle was one from an elec­tric sys­tem that Hur­ley had man­aged to rig up.
