Six films of early exploration introduced from the Royal Geographical Society by explorer, Duncan Carse. 3: By Sledge across Greenland (1930)
'My fears have been realised. The whole business is a big catastrophe and there is no use in concealing the fact. It is now a matter of life and death.' So wrote the leader of the German-Greenland expedition, Alfred Wegener , as he camped, pinned down by blizzards, on the ice-cap. First dense pack-ice had delayed the expedition's landing. Then the new propeller-driven motor sledges on which they were relying had broken down in the first snows of winter; and now it seemed unlikely that the relief dog-sledge team would be able to get through with vital supplies.... This is an account of scientific trail-blazing, and the price that sometimes has to be paid.

Introduced by David Jessel China 's Television Revolution How do a quarter of the world's population see themselves and the rest of the world? After years of isolation, television has suddenly opened up the West to China. And now, for the first time, China opens up itself to the West.
Uniquely, Chinese television has allowed the BBC access to the whole range of its programmes. They reflect the astonishing change which is affecting China as the old life gives way to the new. The rush is on for consumer luxuries fuelled by television's seductive images. But there are warnings too. In the first of two programmes, David Jessel looks behind the bamboo screen and reveals China's newest revolution.
