South Pole explorer alone for 39 days

A former Royal Marine has described the challenge of returning home after a 700-mile trek to the South Pole.

Baz Gray completed the journey on his own, with no resupply, in 39 days.

He had to battle unusually poor weather, 24-hour daylight, and the 85kg (187lbs) sled which had everything he needed to survive.
