Falklands Anniversary: Memories from documentary maker Cindy Buxton

30 years ago today Argentinian forces seized control of South Georgia - a remote island 850 miles East-South East of the Falkands.

Two of the few people on the Antarctic Island were wildlife documentary makers Cindy Buxton and Annie Price - they'd been filming for the Anglia Survival series.

As the British Navy sailed south to reclaim the islands - the plight of Cindy and Annie became front page news. With their cameras rolling the two women had a front row seat as the Falklands war escalated.
