South Pole century marked in new exhibition

It is 100 years since the British explorer Robert Falcon Scott reached the South Pole, only to discover that the Norwegian, Roald Amundsen, had beaten him to it.

A new exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London has opened, marking the anniversary.

Curator Elin Simonson explains the significance of some of the artefacts on display.
