Ski History

Host Bob Edwards speaks with Anne Bancroft. Bancroft and Liv Arnesen have recently become the first women to cross Antarctica on skis. The last leg of their journey measures a relatively small part of the total distance-- though it is equivalent to the distance across France. And because of ice forming off the coast of Antarctica, their boat is leaving on February 22 -- with or without them.
