Events in London – Thursday 17 January

Need some inspiration for 17th January? Captain Scott reached the South Pole on this day in 1912, only to find that he had been beaten by the Norwegians. Scott was to perish on the fiendishly cold journey home. Some pages from his expedition diary are on display at the Treasures of the British Library exhibition.
