Sir Charles Wright, now M and living on Salt Spring Island, off Vancouver, recalls dial all preparations, 1 n c 1 u d i n g the packaging of rations for the final dash to the Pole, were for a trek by only four ish naval explorer Robert Fal- con Scott and three companions. But at the last minute, Scott decided to take along an extra person. All five died as they tried to make it back from the Pole to a supply cache set up by one of the expedition's three support parties. Sir Charles, a scientist on the expedition that began in 1910, comments on the ill-fated ad- venture in a television documen- tary by Ontario's educational TV authority. About an hour of the program is original footage of a movie shot by the expedition's camera- man, Herbert Ponting, believed being shown for the first time on Canadian television. The Pontuijr film the expedition from its start Aboard he ship Terra Nova as it left Mew Zealand, to a rehearsal of the polar assault. The rehearsal scenes always show just four men on the polar team. Upi-to-date commentary on the Ponting film is provided by taped interviews with the only survivors of the Charles and British scientist Sir daymond with Scott's son, Peter.

Peter Scott says the pointment of not being the first to reach the Pole "may added a sort of depressive ele- ment" to the return journey. During the next two months as they headed back towards the cache of supplies, Scott's diary entries became increas- ingly pessimistic. Two of the party died idong the way and Scott and Ms remaining com- panions finally succumbed to the elements and lack of sup- plies at an encampment only 11 miles from the cache. Sir Charles says it was he, travelling with a search part; several months later, who first spotted the tent in Which Scott died.
