Deas gu Antarctica Episode 2 of 3

2/3 Air a slighe deas gu Antarctica tha Cairistìona Allon a' tadhal air South Georgia. Na h-òige 's iomadh sgeulachd a chuala i mun eilean bho a h-athair a bha a' sealg nam muc-mhara agus tha i fhèin a-nise a' faighinn boillsgeadh den dòigh beatha a bh' aige ann an taigh tasgaidh Grytviken. An-diugh tha na mucan mara gann agus se radain a tha pailt, rud a tha na dhuilgheadas mòr do dh'ùghdarrasan an eilein. Sann air South Georgia cuideachd a tha an rannsachair ainmeil Sir Ernest Shackleton air a thiodhlaigeadh agus cluinnidh sinn beagan mu na rinn esan air a thuras iongantach.

En route to Antarctica, Christina Allon vists the island of South Georgia, final resting place of Polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, and goes to see the old whaling station at Grytviken where her father spent time on his visits to the island. The whales are long gone but rats are a now a major problem on the island.
