Bonus Two Polar Exploration Classics:
Ice Bound - 100 Years of Antarctic Exploration
This exclusive collection documents the exploration of the Poles- both past and present - and celebrates man's determination to discover more about the world - whatever the cost.
Made in association with the Smithsonian Channel and National Geographic Channels International - EXPEDITION ANTARCTICA documents the unprecedented journey of a team of international marine scientists and crew on board the research vessel the PV Tangaroa, as it heads for the Ross Sea off the Antarctic Ice Shelf in 2008.
Battered by storms, threatened by thickening pack ice, under pressure to explore 1000's of square kilometres of sea bed in just 50 days, the team aboard ship are pushed to the limits of their endurance - all in the name of science.
In ICEBOUND - 100 YEARS OF EXPLORATION we explore the conflicts and dilemmas, the heroism and drama of Antarctic discovery alongside Antarctic legends Sir Edmund Hillary and Sir Vivian Fuchs. With rare archival film and spectacular new footage it follows the story of Amundsen, Scott, Shackleton and Byrd as they mount the first expeditions to the frozen continent.
The more recent, but equally dangerous, exploration of the Poles is told in ICE PILOTS. In this TV-ratings blockbuster fearless pilots use US Air Force Hercules LC-130 to carry scientists into the unexplored and otherwise unreachable realms of the ice, at great risk to both man and plane.
THIS IS A MUST - HAVE DVD FOR EVERY ADVENTUROUS FAMILY.
