Spent 5 years in the High Arctic in the mid to late 70's. Still a few old timers who used dogs.

Asked one of them shortly after my arrival, and the purchase of my first Skidoo -

"Why don't you use a Skidoo"

Answer - "Can't eat a Skidoo" That put living up there in perspective

Yes, and Amundsen had been studying the Inuit way and that was their philosophy, so he planned his expedition very carefully taking into consideration the fact that as they went further, they would use more provisions and the load would become lighter, so fewer dogs would be necessary – – – and could easily go into the cooking pot!

 

There's a scene in it where they have shot one of the dogs and have cooked it and one of the team is a bit reluctant to eat it, this whilst others are tucking into what looks like a nice meal, so Amundsen describes what happens if you suffer from scurvy, and it's not a pretty picture, so the team member does eventually eat it.

 

As I said before, it's a great movie and puts the attitude of the British towards Amundsen, to shame. But that's how it is taught in schools, or along those lines.

Do a Google search, "who was DB Cooper?", there is not one definitive answer, only conjecture, as in the recent documentary. People love conspiracy theories.

What's hi-jacking a plane got to do with conspiracy theories? The facts are out there.

Then, in 2018, after successfully suing the FBI to release much of its now-closed file, Cold Case Team member Rick Sherwood, who'd served in an intelligence unit during the Vietnam War, decrypted code in letters Cooper had sent to media outlets after the skyjacking, in which he'd apparently given away his identity.

I think the English fascination with keeping a "Stiff Upper Lip" finally was put to rest in WW1

and the subsequent years where the Upper Class lost their all encompassing grip on the rest of the population

Long before the current true-crime television boom, a 1971 unsolved plane hijacking captivated America. Tom Colbert's journey to track down Cooper (and sell his story to Hollywood) led him to an elaborate theory of collusion involving the FBI and CIA.

New TV series "The Flight Attendant"

 

About a hot, alcoholic hostie who likes to give "extra service" to her passengers up in first class - hence makes for entertaining viewing 🙂 👍

 

BKK features in the first Ep.

'Three Identical Strangers' - On Netflix and other sources.

 

Gave me a roller-coaster ride of emotions.

 

 

'Gave me a roller-coaster ride of emotions.'  I'd agree with that entirely. I watched it two years ago and remember it was a very unsettling documentary.

After the Night.

All 4 episodes on RARBG.

Summary: Throughout the 1960s Eric Edgar Cooke terrorised the city of Perth and its residents, cruelly and indiscriminately, as if for sport. Exploring a legacy of tragedy, grief, responsibility and redemption for the three men who were wrongly accused, Stan’s first ever true crime series is told through the eyes of a filmmaker returning to his childhood home and spending time with those closest to the killer and his victims – whose lives he altered forever.
