Robert Charles Swan, OBE, FRGS (b. July 28, 1956 in Durham, England).
"Here is the dramatic behind-the-scenes account of the incredible modern expedition that followed Captain Robert Falcon Scott's 1912 route across Antarctica to the South Pole. In 1985, manhauling every ounce of food, fuel, and equipment behind them on sledges, British explorers Robert Swan, Robert Mear, and Gareth Wood marched 883 miles to the Pole, in total isolation - without radio link or back-up bases - across the most dangerous and unspoiled landscape in the world." - from the dj.
