Description:This film tells the story of the five groups of tiny islands situated in the Southern Ocean between New Zealand and Antarctica. The Antipodes, Bounty, Snares, Campbell, and Auckland Islands are some of the world's last few natural environments unmodified by humans, an isolated haven for many unique species of birds, marine mammals, and plants. This film tells the story of this unique nature reserve, a history of sealing and whaling, of shipwrecked and marooned castaways, and of man's doomed efforts to settle and farm.
