He led the last supporting party to accompany Scott’s polar team, but was taken seriously ill with scurvy on the return to the expedition’s base. As a result he was sent home aboard the ‘Terra Nova’ in March 1912, but returned the following year to pick up the surviving members of the ill-fated expedition.

Scott was tutored by Herbert Ponting, the renowned photographer who was the camera artist to the expedition, which enabled Scott to take his own memorable pictures before perishing on his return from the South Pole on or after 29th March 1912.

Footage from the Terra Nova Expedition


90º South 1933


Herbert Ponting was the official cameraman on Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s British Antarctic Expedition, 1910- 1913, capturing for posterity some fascinating footage of Scott’s legendary and ultimately tragic campaign. He originally released the material as a silent documentary called The Great White Silence, in 1924, but with the coming of sound to film making, he decided to narrate the footage himself and released this version, named 90º South in 1933.
