SEE HEAR: Wednesday 9th December 11am BBC TWO

SH Line Producer | 18:00 UK time, Tuesday, 8 December 2009

Oliver Westbury was the first Deaf man to reach the North Pole - and we filmed his amazing journey on See Hear.  More than a year on from his original adventure, Oliver is looking to complete a rare double - racing to the South Pole in 2011/2012, on the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated Scott expedition.

Our cameras follow Oliver as he starts the process of recruiting people for his team, getting advice from that most renowned of explorers, Sir Ranulph Fiennes - and finding out just how hostile an environment the Antarctic can be compared to the relatively easy-going Arctic...

Join us on See Hear for the start of Oliver's next big adventure.
