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. Take a journey to the bottom of the Earth in a feature-length look at the history of man's presence on Antarctica, the coldest continent on the planet where temperatures have reached - 89°C. 19th century explorers unsuccessfully attempted to reach the South Pole, but it wasn't until 1911 that men penetrated the interior. Though the race to be the first to the Pole claimed the lives of Robert F. Scott and his British team 100 years ago, it inspired intense interest in the remote, frozen continent. As the century progressed, so did a steady stream of exploration, exploitation and experimentation. As we remember the 100th anniversary of Scott's doomed expedition to become the first man to reach the South Pole, "Antarctica: A Frozen History" takes a look back at those who have tried, failed and conquered this most unforgiving landscape. Scott reached the South Pole in January 1912 only to find he had been beaten to the spot by 33 days. His entire party died on the return journey; eight months later, a search party discovered some of their bodies, diaries and photographs. 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. Explore the remote glaciers, frozen bays and otherworldly landscapes of this extraordinary continent, which is unlikely to ever surrender its title as the most desolate place on Earth.
