Encounters at the End of the World

In spite of the number of nature conversationalist living in Antarctica, none of the people Herzog talks to mentions the footprint they are leaving on the continent. Why?

Have you ever dreamed of visiting the South Pole? What things would you want to see or do? How does this documentary’s look at the people living there contrast with other nature programs you may have seen about Antarctica?
