Antarctica: South of the Circle

Antarctica: South of the Circle

The 'South of the Circle' DVD follows the voyage of an icebreaker from Port Stanley in the Falkland Islands, across the Drake passage to the Peninsula. Reaching the calmer waters of the Gerlache Strait, she journeys south through the Lemaire Channel. There are on-deck celebrations when the Antarctic Circle is crossed. After a landing on Stonington Island and a cruise through Marguerite Bay, the icebreaker continues through the Bellingshausen Sea to reach the peri-antarctic island of Peter 1. Cutting her way through the pack ice, she eventually reaches the staggering Ross Ice Shelf. One of the highlights of such a voyage is a visit to Scott and Shackleton's huts on Ross Island. The modern American base at McMurdo and New Zealand's Scott Base are nearby. Conditions are favourable for a landing at Cape Washington to see emperor penguins. Adelie penguins can be seen at Cape Adare. This is the last continental landing, before the voyage ends at the port of Lyttelton, New Zealand.

Also available in Blu-ray format £20
NTSC format £20.

The Great Adventurers - Robert Falcon Scott

The Great Adventurers - Robert Falcon Scott

The choices made by Robert Falcon Scott before and during his race across Antarctica are as much debated today as they were in that fateful year of 1912. The prize was the South Pole and the admiration of a nation. The story which unfolded was to propel Scott into the annals of history as a hero-adventurer... but it was also to claim his life.

Featuring reconstructions, expert analysis, archive photography and comment from Sir Ranulph Fiennes, this DVD is an enthralling look at a man who was to become known simply as "Scott of the Antarctic".

Narrated by Graham McTavish

South Georgia - A South Atlantic Sanctuary

South Georgia - A South Atlantic Sanctuary

The "South Atlantic Sanctuary" DVD commences at Cape Rosa, where Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men first landed on South Georgia. Aboard the small cruise vessel the "Sea Spirit", there follows a circumnavigation of the island. The ship makes numerous anchorages along the north-east coastline to allow landings at various bays to see the magnificant wildlife and some of the old whaling stations. Probably no other island or place on this planet has such an abundance of sea birds and other mammals. King penguins breed on the sub-Antarctic islands at the northern reaches of Antarctica. On South Georgia there are just thousands of these magnificent penguins. The total population exceeds 2.5 million. In addition, there are elephant seals, gentoo penguins and the wonderful wandering albatrosses. The scenery is just fantastic. The DVD concludes with an eight mile voyage up to the Drygalski fjord. Here, there are breathtaking views of glaciers as they flow into the head of the fjord.
