Fact-based drama following explorer Robert Falcon Scott's failed expedition to be the first to reach the South Pole. The extreme conditions, poor decision-making and the pressure of the race to make it to the Pole before their Norwegian rivals proved too much for the British team, resulting in tragedy in 1912. Starring John Mills, Derek Bond, James Robertson Justice, Kenneth More and John Gregson.
