Blizzard: Race To The Pole brings history to life by re-creating Scott and Amundsen's epic journey to the South Pole.

Two modern day teams of explorers have been set the challenge of travelling across a route identical in length to that covered by Scott and Amundsen.

The journey is a staggering 2,500 km long in sub-zero conditions using only the equipment, clothing and food that were available to the original teams. The members of this expedition will experience first hand, in terrifying detail, the chilling truth behind the race to the South Pole.

Because dogs are now prohibited from use in Antarctica, the journey took place in Greenland in the spring/summer of 2005.
