This is the true tale of the first bid to cross Antarctica without help. No dogs. No rescue planes on standby. No food or equipment dropped. Just two men, their overloaded sleds and their desire to be first! Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Mike Stroud are used to danger, but this trip tests them to the limit. Will they make it to the South Pole – and survive?
