Synopsis:
A dramatic interpretation of the epic race to the South Pole one of the greatest adventure stories of the Twentieth Century. Englishman, Captain Robert Falcon Scott (Martin Shaw), and rival explorer, Norwegian, Roald Amundsen (Sverre Anker Ousdal), undertake an awesome and dangerous 1,500 mile trek across the desolate frozen wastes of Antarctica, to be the first to plant their countiy's flag at the Pole. Amundsen won the race, but it was Scott who was to reap the glory. After the bitter disappointment of coming second, all five members of the British polar team perished on the return journey. The tragedy turned Scott into a national hero, hailed as an inspiration to succeeding generations.
With a screenplay by award-winning dramatist Trevor Griffiths, 'The Last Place on Earth' is a powerful and frank account of the race for the pole. Based on true stories.
