Movie Info

A hundred years ago the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913) led by Captain Scott set out on its ill-fated race to the South Pole. Joining Scott on board the Terra Nova was official photographer and cinematographer Herbert Ponting, and the images that he captured have fired imaginations ever since. Ponting filmed almost every aspect of the expedition: the scientific work, life in camp and the local wildlife. Those things he was unable to film he boldly recreated back home. Most importantly, Ponting recorded the preparations for the assault on the Pole -- from the trials of the caterpillar track sledges to clothing and cooking equipment -- giving us a real sense of the challenges faced by the expedition.

... what is unexpectedly impressive is Ponting's superb storytelling, especially of an event he was unable to photograph.
