One hundred years after Captain Robert Falcon Scott wrote his last diary entry, St Pauls Cathedral will host a service to commemorate the centenary of the British Antarctic Terra Nova Expedition 1910 to 1913.
The service will pay tribute to the courage of Scott and his men and celebrate the scientific legacy of the expedition. Sir David Attenborough is set to read an extract from the final diary entry of Captain Scott, and Foreign Secretary William Hague and Princess Anne are due to attend.
