From WNET:

"Dr. Laurence M. Gould, president of Carleton College and director of the United States Antarctica Program, explains the purpose of the Antarctica Program and its importance in connection with the International Geophysical year. Dr. Gould cites the basic concept for this series as “The ultimate supremacy of man’s sprit in conquering his environment.” The series is oriented around the various scientific disciplines being examined in Antarctica and the conditions under which these examinations take place. A large amount of film footage shot in Antarctica by IGY photographers and the US Navy and Coast Guard is incorporated in this new series. The series was produced by KTCA-TV, St. Paul."
