Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast 2020

Cerys Matthews presents a special programme for just 40 listeners: the team of scientists and support staff isolated at British research stations in the Antarctic midwinter.

Every year, the BBC World Service makes this special programme for just 40 listeners: the team of scientists and support staff isolated at British research stations in the Antarctic midwinter. The Antarctic Midwinter Broadcast is unlike anything else on the BBC World Service. Presented by Cerys Matthews, it features messages from family and friends at home as well as music requests from Antarctica. For decades it has been part of the traditional midwinter celebrations.
