If you enjoyed the TV programme, then this book is well worth reading. I found the diary entries tedious, but the book helps to confirm that although Amundsen was a race winner , Scott was not a loser. Amundsen was confirmed to be expert , single-minded,and lucky on the day; whilst Scott was complex , opinionated and swayed by Navy 'ways'; he and his faithful courageous men, unlucky with the weather, still achieved against unimaginable odds and deserving of utmost respect. Well worth the trip

Adds more detail to the TV programme. Much interesting detail about the two early expeditions and well written. I would have liked to read a little about how the filming took place, perhapps this will come in a DVD of the programme?

I didn't watch the programme, but in enjoyed the book very much. There is alot of information on the original journey and the re-enactment, which is very easy to read. The only reason not five, some of the diary enteries are slighty long winded. A great book for anyone interested in polar exploration.
