Trivia The song that Olav Bjaaland (Ståle Bjørnhaug) sings when the Norwegian team breaks the "farthest south" record is "Nordmannen", also called "Millom Bakkar og Berg". The lyrics are by the Norwegian poet and linguist, Ivar Aasen (1813-1896), best known for developing the "landsmaal" written language from rural Norwegian dialects. The music is by Ludvig Lindeman (1812-1887). See more »
Goofs On his return from the South Pole at 'Framheim,' Amundsen learns that the credit for reaching the North Pole has been taken away from Dr Frederick Cook and given instead to Peary. In reality, Amundsen was well aware of the controversy *before* his departure for Antarctica, and to avoid any question that he had not reached the true South Pole due to faulty navigation, staked out an area of ten miles around what he believed to be the Pole itself.
