The history and stories of the human explorations in theAntarctica are examined in A Frozen History. Although quite slow paced and relatively old, the documentary film successfully incorporates reconstructed film material and original Antarctic expedition footage to fully illustrate the hardship of the heroic and extreme arctic explorations. The documentary takes a look back at those who have tried, failed and conquered this most unforgiving landscape. Robert Falcon Scott, a Royal Navy officer and explorer, led the Discovery expedition in 1901 and the Terra Nova expedition in 1910. Scott was beaten to the South Pole by 33 days after reaching it in January 1912. Some of their bodies, diaries and photographs were found eight months later by a search party.
