The Screen Guide

Celebrates Mawson's major expedition in Antarctica which began in 1911. The program uses some of the earliest polar film footage ever shot to show the first stages of the venture; then it moves into dramatic reconstruction based on his diaries to tell a story of human agony and survival in a setting of cold, savage beauty.
