Abstract:

A 75 minute videotape copy of a series of short, silent, black and white newsreel films produced by Bio-Film Company and Biorstad and Thiel Film A/S of Oslo, Norway, which document the work of the Norwegian North Polar Expedition. Begins with images taken of Roald Amundsen on July 25, 1925, at the end of the expedition; the ship Maud at Point Hope on July 29, 1922; A chart shows the track of the vessel from Nome, Alaska to Spitsbergen. There is an overview of Maud, and closeups of expedition participants including Harald Ulrik Sverdrup, Finn Malgren, Odd Dahl, G. Olonkin, and K. Hansen. Includes many scenes of scientists taking geophysical and meteorological measurements and observations, and many images of instruments and expedition equipment. There are hunting scenes with walrus and polar bear. One newsreel is dated June 1, 1923 and shows the assembly, brief flight and crash of the Curtiss Oriole aircraft "Kristine." A July 1923 segment shows expedition dogs and dogsleds. A winter, 1923-24 segment provides a view of the shipboard communications area. A June 1924 segment shows Maud frozen in the ice. A winter 1924-25 segment shows preparations for Maud's return home, and a March 1, 1925 visit to an Eskimo village. There is a brief view of the airship Norge over the Pole.
