Full Description

The sealing ship Theron, with members of the Antarctic Expedition on board, sails into the ice-fields of Antarctica and, after being jammed in for many weeks, finally breaks free and batters her way on to where a base is established while other expedition members search for a base site on the opposite side of the Antarctic continent. Sir Edmund Hillary, George Lowe, Lt. Commander Smith and Trevor Hatherton describe experiences of their visit to the polar regions.
