bbc world service special mid-winter broadcast to antarctica

video
 
Last weekend (sunday, june 21) the BBC broadcast a special half hour program specifically for the handful of individuals stationed in Antarctica (the British Antarctic Survey).  The annual mid-winter (local) broadcast happened to coincide with our summer solstice :D

The short clip (just under 3 minutes) is the end of the program, highlighted by "Baby It's Cold Out There" sung to conclude the transmission.  Apologies in advance for the poor audio.  This clip was included in the SWLing Post's, "Listening Across the Globe: 2015 BBC Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast," which collected clips of various receptions of the broadcast around the world!

The full broadcast can be heard, directly, via the BBC (however, it will only remain available for 30 days).
