“One to consider for a winter jaunt is Edward Fox’s stiff-upper-lip reading of Scott’s Last Journey.”  The Spectator “The audio’s editors have made a good selection, from the courageous good cheer and sea shanties at the beginning to the last entries, blizzard-bound in a tent 11 miles from the next depot.”  Sunday TimesIn 1911 Captain Robert Falcon Scott went back to the huge, frozen wasteland of the Antarctic with the intention of reaching the South Pole, by a long and terribly arduous trek across the ice.  On finally reaching the pole, Scott and his comrades were devastated to find that they had been beaten by the Norwegian explorer Amundsen. With temperatures of minus 30, they began their slow journey back to their base. Coming within eleven miles of safety, they finally succumbed to the elements and they were found eight months later frozen to death. Also available as part of the CLASSIC LETTERS & JOURNALS BOX SET, a seven-volume edition.The Letters & Journals of Lord Nelson with Charles DanceThe Letters of Charlotte Bronte with Imogen StubbsScott of the Antarctic with Edward FoxThe Highland Journals of Queen Victoria with Virginia McKennaThe Letters of Lord Byron with Robert Powell The Letters of Jane Austen with Fiona ShawThe Journals of Dorothy Wordsworth with Jenny AgutterAbridged:       Guy FithenMusic:            Robert RigbyDirector:         Guy FithenProducer:       Michael Cameron & Stewart Richards© & ? 2022 Mr Punch Audiobooks Ltd
