Antarctica - A Frozen History [DVD]
As we remember the 100th anniversary of Scott's doomed expedition to become the first man to reach the South Pole, Antarctica: A Frozen History takes a look back at those who have tried, failed and conquered this most unforgiving landscape. Scott reached the South Pole in January 1912 only to find he had been beaten to the spot by 33 days. His entire party died on the return journey; eight months later, a search party discovered some of their bodies, diaries and photographs. We'll cross the continent in the footsteps of legendary explorers like Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton, tracing the routes of their journeys and visiting the sites forever transformed by their presence. Explore the remote glaciers, frozen bays and otherworldly landscapes of this extraordinary continent, which is unlikely to ever surrender its title as the most desolate place on Earth.
