"In 1930-31 the British Arctic Air Route (BAAR) expedition, set out to investigate the possibility of an air route to North America via Iceland, Greenland. Plans to fly across the Greenland icecap were abandoned after their Gypsy Moth aircrafts suffered considerable damage. They then set out on a gruelling and remarkable overland expedition negotiating streams, lakes and fjords between the icecap and the sea. This program documents the incredible journey of three adventurers as they retrace the steps of the 1930-31 expedition, from the East Coast to the West Coast, across the icy labyrinth that is Greenland. Replacing Eskimo sleds, seal skin kayaks and dog teams with modern day equipment of lightweight skies polyethylene river kayaks and quadrifoil kites as their dog team, the adventurers - Eric Philips, Ben Galbraith and Wade Fairley - rediscover and conquer this harsh and spectacular environment. This documentary captures the fatal beauty of Greenland's glacial icebergs; the extreme conditions of negotiating the freezing cold lakes and white water rapids, bottomless crevasses and ten metre ice walls; and the compelling account of the inner personal journey that each adventurer experiences during the month long expedition across the icecap."--Container
