Among others, listeners are introduced to Hélène Boucher and her ambition that took her soaring above the clouds, Roald Amundsen and his fixation with the North and his then somewhat unpredicted discovery of the South Pole and the true story of Maria Von Trapp whose life became the inspiration for the iconic Broadway production and film, The Sound of Music.
