A compact biog pleasing to amateur and pro photographers.
13 January 2005 | by david-mcmillan-1See all my reviews

Australian photographer Frank Hurley was more than a mere recorder of images. The "making history" of the title refers to some darkroom manipulation that some view as a corruption of the event, while others appreciate the addition of editorial narrative, even in Hurley's glass-plate stills. Interviews with historians and Hurleys inheritors provide the somewhat opposing views. The narration in English is perhaps too doubting in delivery despite the even, journalistic text. Sharp presentation and atmospheric editing make the Hurley documentary the first connection for a wide audience probably familiar with Hurley's iconic photographs.It is in these images rather than the investigation of supposed re-staging of historical events Antarctica that elevate "Hurley" to top-level TV biographical history.
