Ponting’s film record of the last Scott expedition, supplemented with photographs and artwork.

By great good fortune, Scott had brought along one of the best photographers, able to give original views that are quite authentic and therefore surprising in the variety of aspect he records and the beauty of the place, all quite unexpected in the circumstances.

Scott’s own photographs toward the Pole are more analytical, geological and in that way descriptive by comparison.

Vice-Admiral Evans, second-in-command, introduces the film, which Ponting narrates with musical accompaniment.
