Share the experiences of four British teachers as they undertake a four-week trip to Antarctica, carrying out scientific experiments in order to bring the results back to the scientific community and their pupils.
One teacher investigates the effect of cold on the human body, another is trying to discover a type of lichen that is thought to exist in the area, but which has never been found.
As time goes on, the trip takes a toll on the teachers both physically and mentally. We follow the expedition from beginning to end, taking a look at the personal highs and lows of living in the harshest continent on the planet.
Despite the hardships they endure, the teachers are inspired by their adventure, but will their pupils show similar enthusiasm when the teachers return to the classroom and share the results of the experiments?
