The Last Place on Earth

Bit of a coincidence. When I was quickly looking for links to do with the previous blog, I came across a link to The Last Place on Earth. All well and good; it's the title of Huntford's account of Scott and Amundsen's race to the South Pole. I wasn't exactly rushing to read it, as after reading his Shackleton and reading Fiennes' excellent Scott book, I knew I would be in more another dose of sustained negativity (I can generate that all by myself, thanks). But this Last Place on Earth is the DVD of a tv 1980s series I never saw. I was probably out digging somewhere, with no access to a tv. It's still based on Huntford's book, but I'll give it a go.

Anyhow, for a short while, it looked like I would have to purchase a Region 1 NTSC version which may or may not play on my DVD. That's the cover shot showing in this blog, btw. A slightly broader search brought very good news indeed. The Last Place on Earth is being issued on Region 2, ie playable in Europe, on 20th November. Looks like at the very least, W. H. Smith will be stocking it. Er, that'll be just in time for my birthday, or failing that, Chrismas will do :-)

Alex, looks like an interesting DVD, and was it a hint at the end of the blog entry?
