Documentary about crossing Greenland
August 3, 2011 5:40 AM   Subscribe

Help me identify (and hopefully watch) a documentary about people walking/skiing across Greenland and visiting an abandoned DEW station on the way.

Searched for but could not find this film I saw on UK terrestrial broadcast sometime in the 90s/ Early 2000s. At one point they visit a decommissioned, empty radar station (presumably one of the DEW stations?)

Any help appreciated.

Perhaps it's Greenland Quest? Haven't seen it -- only googled -- but it's been around since 2008/2009 so possibly wrong timeframe.

interesting one. I'd like to see that too. As I recall the journey in 'my' film was in a West/East (or the reverse) direction.
Thanks for digging that one out, but I don't think it's the right one.

I have got this on VCR tape, it is pretty amazing. Looks like you can view it here (Greenland Traverse - 1995)

Thanks canoehead - I'm guessing that your VCR copy shows the bits where they wander about in the decommissioned radar station and note that it seems to have been abandoned in a real hurry? - those bits aren't on the snippets you've linked for me, (thought they look great).

That's right, I recall that sequence.

Guess I know what to look for now, then. Thanks very much.
