The contest between Amundsen and Scott as they race to the South Pole, which reaches a tragic climax.
Race to the South Pole
The race to the South Pole is a saga that began 200 years ago with an Irish navigator and Russian seaman who first set eyes on Antarctica. It recalls the British mariners who braved the pack ice in sailing ships to map the frozen continent, and reaches a tragic climax in the contest between Amundsen and Scott.
