It remains the most remote, least hospitable and most mysterious of all the lands on earth. But for those few who hear its siren song, it exerts a pull that cannot be denied.
ANTARCTICA: A FROZEN HISTORY explores the surprisingly rich history of man's presence at the bottom of the world, from 18th-century accounts of discovery like those of Captain Cook to the work conducted at modern research stations. Through adventure diaries, rare photos and newspaper accounts of their heroic exploits, we'll cross the continent in the footsteps of legendary explorers like Amundsen, Scott and Shackleton, tracing the extent of their journeys and visiting the sites forever transformed by their presence. And we'll tour the remote glaciers, frozen bays and otherworldly landscapes of this extraordinary continent, which is unlikely ever to surrender its title as the most desolate place on earth.
