Voyage of the Nautilus (DVD)
The journey of renowned Australian military photographer Sir Hubert Wilkins in a rusty WW1 submarine to the North Pole in 1931 truly is of the world's greatest stories of adventure never told. It was an adventure that would be the crowning glory in an extraordinary life of exploration, science and discovery.
Long before nuclear powered vessels would even contemplate such a voyage, Hubert Wilkins set out from New York aboard the outdated O-Class submarine Nautilus, of which he leased for a single dollar, towards the last unknown, the Arctic Ocean.
The Nautilus expedition was a triumph of imagination and courage but it ended in mutiny and personal tragedy for Wilkins, destroying his reputation and sending him from the headlines to footnotes of history, his boat eventually scuttled off the coast of Norway.
Compiled from more than 20 hours of stunning archival footage, 250 still photographs and new footage filmed in the US, the North pole, Norway, beneath the Arctic ice and in the Australian Outbback, Voyage of the Nautilus is expertly narrated from Wilkin's own personal journals by acclaimed actor Sam Neill to deliver a moving, inspirational and remarkable film experience.
