The crazy things people do: Have you ever heard of Heard Island?

Take a point somewhere in the middle between Africa and India, and then go South until you hit Antarctica... Somewhere there, lays a small island called Heard Island. "Property" of Australia, the island was settled by seal hunters a century ago.
So isolated that over thousands of years, several animals developed into unique species, not to be found anywhere else.

Dominated by an active volcano, and covered in black ash, Heard comes as inhospitable as any island comes.

That island was the destination of our 1997 expedition. And this is the video we made of that trip. Probably the trip which was also a turning point in my professional career, when I started to grasp what it took to manage a high performant team, under harsh circumstances....

The video is a rip from a VHS tape...
