Myth of Captain Scott's Antarctic exploration

Captain Scott's tragic expedition to the Antarctic is a story of courage and despair that has captivated generations.

Scott and his team never returned after being beaten to the South Pole by the Norwegian Roald Amundsen.

Now, 100 years on, many previously unseen images from that trip will be on show at an exhibition in the UK.

And for one descendant of the explorers, it's time myths surrounding the so called "race to the Antarctic" were put to rest.

Tim Muffett reports.
