ANTARCTICA   Midwinter's Day in Antarctica: broadcast tonight June 21.


On Tuesday June 21st, scientists and support staff based at research
stations in Antarctica will celebrate Midwinter's Day, the shortest day of
the Austral Winter. In a tradition that goes back to the early days of
exploration on the continent, British Antarctic Survey (BAS) staff will sit
down to a festive meal and exchange gifts.

They will also listen to the BBC World Service's annual Midwinter's Day
broadcast. This year's programme is presented by Cerys Matthews of BBC Radio
6 Music and will include personal greetings to everyone working at BAS'
research stations. BAS has four stations which it operates over the winter
months; Bird Island, Kind Edward Point, Rothera and Halley VI. There are a
total of 46 staff wintering at those stations.

In her message to staff BAS Director, Jane Francis, said everyone would be
thinking of those currently working in Antarctica as they sat down to their
meals. She spoke of a busy time ahead for the organisation with various
major projects in the pipeline as well as the building of a new ship.

Staff at Rothera Research Station will hold their festivities next week.
They postponed the event to focus on the task of assisting the US National
Antarctic Programme with a medical evacuation from its Amundsen-Scott
station at the South Pole. The runway at Rothera has had to be cleared to
allow aircraft used in the evacuation to land and refuel.

People can tweet greetings to those working in Antarctica by using the

hashtag #BASmidwinter

Spanischübertragung bei deren Spiel gegen Klinsmann-USA aus.
