Spitsbergen Retraced - the Film

A year ago the Spitsbergen Retraced expedition returned from our successful crossing of the island.
Very sadly, Jamie Gardiner, Expedition Historian and Film Director, later died tragically in Norway. 
We remember Jamie as a keen mountaineer, true friend and talented film maker; he was the driving force behind this film.
