Sir Hubert began his personal correspondence with "Hello Hello".

Sir Hubert at the Adelaide Fringe

A newsletter is in the pipeline for March, but as these two events may be of interest to our readership we are sending out this little newsletter now.

Peter Maddern's The Eye of Wilkins presents many images which Wilkins took that have never been seen in documentary form before.

Jonathon Glonek, who played at the 2019 Wilkins Oration, and is working on some music in honour of Wilkins, is performing the entire works for unaccompanied violin by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Details below.

The Eye of Wilkins

He was one of the greatest Polar explorers. He was also a world-class photographer. For the first time, the photos and films of South Australian, Sir George Hubert Wilkins are being brought together in this new documentary by Peter Maddern. From under the North Pole ice and deep among the front lines of the Western Front in the Great War, from sailing high above the earth in the Graf Zeppelin to riding the roiling seas on Shackleton's Quest, Wilkins kept his cameras going. His photographic record of the 30 years from 1910 to the Second World War is like no other.

If you haven't heard of this great man, this is a time to sit back and be amazed at what he achieved, at what he witnessed and at how he isn't better known in his home town. Part of the 'Bringing Wilkins Home' initiative.
