Storyline

This is a documentary of Captain R.F. Scott's second Antarctic expedition, begun in 1910. The British, under Scott, attempted to reach the South Pole before Roald Amundsen's Norwegians. Scott's writings reveal that the British made it to the South Pole, only to find that the Norwegians had gotten there first. Scott, and the other four men who had made it to the Pole with him, died on the return trip. Written by George S. Davis <mgeorges@prodigy.net>

Documentary with amazing footage...
8 November 2001 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 11/7/2001 - 8 out of 10 (Dir-Herbert G. Ponting): Documentary with amazing footage of the final Antartic expedition of the Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his crew starting with 60 people. This film has adventure, amazing cinematography, wonderfully witty animal footage of penguins and seals in the area and shows the great courage of the people trying to do something that seemed almost humanely impossible. It's amazing that so much footage was accomplished and so much has now been captured for generations about this perilous journey. Bravo to the English National film archive for restoring this film and now it could even be found on DVD for even more generations.
