[edit] Information

Tells the remarkable true story of how, in 1968, four "average Joes" from Minnesota teamed up with a French Canadian bon vivant to make the 500-mile journey across the polar ice cap to the North Pole via snowmobile. Though they had no experience in the Arctic, and were told by the so-called "experts" that their mission was doomed to fail, this working class team of "Minnesota Cronies" persevered through shifting sea ice, sub-zero blizzards, snow-blindness, and countless near-death experiences to become the first men ever to complete the overland trek to the North Pole. But that's only half the story. With the help of acclaimed CBS journalist Charles Kuralt, the unlikely heroes of the Plaisted Polar Expedition peeled back the curtain on a cover-up more than 50 years in the making – and discovered that well-heeled explorer Robert Peary's 1909 claim of being the first man to reach the North Pole was in all likelihood a fabrication. Brilliantly assembled with hundreds of hours of home videos, audio diaries, and 16mm footage of the expedition itself, First to the Pole provides an intimate look at the "forgotten heroes" of the Plaisted Polar Expedition, and their epic journey to do what no man had done before – and thanks to global warming, will never be done again.
