The book devotes itself to studies of the first film ever made in Australia, The 1896 Melbourne Cup, Frank Hurley's film record of Shackleton's ill-fated exploration of Antarctica and Robert Flaherty's Nanook of the North. But along the way there are always surprising twists and turns - personal recollections, digressive contributions from friends and, as Fred Harden says on the Armchair Traveller Facebook page, discussions of equipment used, cinematic techniques and more. This has all been developed and expanded with lots of links to film clips. It weaves through Peter's teaching life and his own films creating an engaging document
Peter has made a little silent 'trailer' to give some first insights into the subjects covered and the thoughts gathered up in the book.
