  1.  Amazing documentary - even by today's standards

    Posted: 

    Despite the tragic ending, this documentary never emphasizes the drama and doom but shows the thrill of the expedition members to discover this foreign, fierce land.
    Even compared to today's standard, the footage of penguins, gulls, killer whales and the fantastic landscape are exciting. It also shows the everyday life on ship and in the camp. My favourite: the football game.
    By all means, this film isn't some dusty, dry historic document but an enjoyable documentary.
    Thanks to the BFI it looks superb on a HD-TV and the new music is minimalistic and doesn't distract.
