description

Import Blu-Ray/Region All pressing. A hundred years ago the British Antarctic Expedition led by Captain Scott set out on its ill-fated race to the South Pole. Joining Scott on board the Terra Nova was official photographer and cinematographer Herbert Ponting, and the images that he captured have fired imaginations ever since. Ponting filmed almost every aspect of the expedition: the scientific work, life in camp and the local wildlife. Most importantly, Ponting recorded the preparations for the assault on the Pole, giving us a real sense of the challenges faced by the expedition. Ponting used his footage in various forms over the years and in 1924 he re-edited it into this remarkable feature, complete with vivid tinting and toning. The BFI National Archive has restored the film using the latest photochemical and digital techniques and reintroduced the film's sophisticated use of color. Special Features: Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition, Includes 90 Degrees South (1933, 70min); the re-edited, official sound film of the Antarctic expedition 90º South (1933, 72 mins): Herbert Ponting s final sound version of the legendary footage he shot in 1910 11, and so much more.
