David,If you haven't already read it, "The Worst Journey in the World" by Apsley Cherry-Garrard is another must read. Apart from giving a different insight into Scott's failure, it tells an amazing tale of winter travel in Antarctica - to collect eggs from Emperor Penguins. I think I saw it too on audible.co.uk.
Sorry about this off topic stuff, folks, but this is the glory of email lists: you find people with shared interests.
