Please find attached a BBC News Article I wrote on Dr Edward Wilson. I would like to thank the following people for their time and input:
- Bryan Lintott based at the SPRI (Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge, UK) for providing advice and the 3 black and white images of Wilson in Antarctica, for this article.
- Doctor Isobel Williams, biographer of Edward Wilson, who made herself available at such short notice. I spent a long time hearing about Wilson’s life last weekend, by very long distance telephone
- And of course, BBC News for commissioning me to write it.
- Doctor Dale Mole, my good friend and ‘fellow polar explorer’ who is currently the lone doctor overwintering at the US Amundsen Scott South Pole Antarctic Station.
