The last place on earth 6h 36min drama tv mini series 1985 episode guide 7 episodes scott vs amundsen it wasnt meant to be a race but race it becomes as the world awaits news of the first to reach the pole what follows is a tale of heroism foolhardiness . The last place on earth is a 1985 central television seven part serial written by trevor griffiths based on the book scott and amundsen by roland huntford the book is an exploration of the expeditions of captain robert f scott played by martin shaw and his norwegian rival in polar exploration . The last place on earth is the first of huntfords masterly trilogy of polar biographies it is also the only work on the subject in the english language based on the original norwegian sources to which huntford returned to revise and update this edition. The last place on earth is a now forgotten british mini series thats worth remembering based on roland huntfords still controversial myth shattering biography of scott and amundsens race to the south pole its the kind of thing which would be done in a rushed 2 3 hours at most today but in 1985 got more than twice that running time over seven episodes. The last place on earth is an exhaustive well researched account of scott and amundsens race to the south pole but i cant rate it any higher because of the authors huge bias against scott i get it scott isnt my favorite either but contempt and loathing ooze off every page which makes it a little hard to trust the authors conclusions
