Synopsis

You may have heard of the polar explorer Captain Scott, but did you know that his last doomed expedition to the South Pole was caught on film? Herbert G Ponting was the official photographer of the 1912 trip and he edited together his footage into a silent film in 1924. Painstakingly restored by the BFI, you can now see it on DVD with the addition of a new soundtrack from Simon Fisher Turner. It’s an unusual film, and knowing the eventual fate of the team makes the images of a spectacular landscape all the more haunting.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
