Director looks at heroes in miniseries By JERRY BUCK AP Television Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ferdinand Fairfax said he welcomed the chance to direct a miniseries about the race to reach the South Pole so he could examine two men desperate to become heroes. The six-part series. "The Last Place on Earth," tells of the competition between British navy" Capt. Robert Scott and Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen in 1912. It will be shown on Mobil's "Masterpiece Theatre" on PBS beginning in October. Amundsen beat Scott to the pole by a month, while Scott and four of his crew perished in the cold on the way back. But history is often fickle. Fairfax said Scott, an amateur who trusted to luck rather than careful planning, became the celebrated hero and Amundsen, a professional who left nothing to chance, was dismissed as a "dog eater" (because his crew ate their sled dogs to survive). "I think the story is relevant to our times because it shows how heroes are made," said Fairfax. "Scott was always held up with Lord Nelson and Churchill. So it's interesting to look at these two men who sought to be heroes. "Prime Minister (Margaret) Thatcher invoked Scott during the Falklands war. Scott had recorded everything in his diary up to the moment of his death. They were published just before World War I. and he was held up as an example to millions of Englishmen were sent off to the trenches. Scott became every schoolboy's hero, held up as an example of how to die for your country." Fairfax pointed out that the diaries were carefully edited under the supervision of Scott's widow, Kathleen, an ambitious woman who had pushed him into the polar venture. Everything that pointed up Scott's inept'leadership was taken out. "She presided over the editing and the production of the myth," Fairfax said. The British-made miniseries is taken from the book by Roland Huntford. Fairfax, on a brief visit here from England, said, "What Huntford did for the first time was examine the twin careers of Scott and Amundsen. Amundsen's achievement was much greater. Amundsen was a professional, neat. lean, highly trained. Scott, with far more resources, never 'really worked out his plan. He took dogs, horses and motor sleds, but not enough of each. "It was a competition between a professional and an amateur. But because of his tragic death and the discovery of his diaries, although Scott los't the race, he reaped the glory. Amundsen was forgotten and dismissed as the man who ate the dogs." Martin Shaw plays Scott. Norwegian actor Sverre Anker Ous- dal is Amundsen, Susan Wooldridge (Daphne in "The Jewel in the Crown") is Kathleen Scott and Max Von Sydow is Amundsen's mentor, FridtjofNansen. Brian Dennehy portrays Frederick Cook, a friend of Amundsen who was involved in a similar competition with Robert Pearv to reach the North Pole first. "My purpose is no? to demolish one myth and replace it with another," Fairfax said. "It's to look at how and why we choose our heroes. Some heroes, as Scott, are manufactured because they serve a suitable purpose at the tune. The past does inform us about the future", because it's happening today. We should question how our heroes get made." "The Last Place on Earth" is also a great adventure. Fairfax took his cast and crew to Canada's Frobisher Bay and beyond for eight weeks of filming in the snow and temperatures that ranged from 20 to 59 below zero. They were tested nearly as severely as Scott and Amundsen. Fairfax's face was frostbitten because wearing a mask interfered with his directions to cast and crew. "They always tell you that it's the equipment that's going to give up," he said. "That's not true, it's the people. Cold congeals the blood and slows you down physically and mentally." He also filmed in Norway, Scotland and England.
