Documentary which looks back on the attempts of Robert F. Scott and other explorers to reach the South Pole. The journey to the South Pole is arguably one of the toughest and most hostile in the world. Perhaps because of its very remoteness, a number of explorers have been determined to reach it. It is now almost a hundred years since Robert Falcon Scott's famous Terra Nova Expedition, on which he and all of his team perished on the way back from the pole. The documentary pays tribute to Scott and the other explorers who braved the harshest of conditions on their southward journey.
