Abstract:

When Scott goes to Norway for the trials of his revolutionary motorised sledges, Nansen offers him sound advice on dogs, clothing, food, and above all, skis. Most of it falls on dead ears.

Meanwhile, Amundsen, having kept his destination a closely guarded secret, makes a quiet departure from Norway. When he docks at Madeira to take on fresh provisions he at last reveals his true intentions to his men and asks for their support.
