A drama commemorating TBS’s 60th anniversary, the story is about 11
members who were sent to the South Pole for the first time in February
1957 in a national project to explore Antarctica. They were accompanied
by a dogsled of 19 Sakhalin dogs. When they left for Japan a year later,
they were forced to leave the dogs behind due to the bad weather. In
January 1959, Kuramochi Takeshi and some others joined a third
expedition to ascertain the fate of the dogs Taro and Jiro. (source: DramaWikiJdrama Weblog)
