From Hurley's early life as a run away school boy, Mr Millar takes us through his Antarctic expeditions with Sir Douglas Mawson and Sir Ernest Shackleton. Hurley's striving to achieve 'the perfect picture' regardless of the personal and physical cost was given full rein during this period of his career.
