Research And Development In The Arctic - The Big Picture

National Archives and Records Administration ARC Identifier 2569635 / Local Identifier 111-TV-366 Big Picture: Research and Development in the Arctic DVD Copied by Katie Filbert. "THE BIG PICTURE" cameramen follow Army engineers into Artic wastelands -- The mission of the First Engineer Arctic Task Force of the Army's Corps of Engineers is dramatically filmed by cameramen of THE BIG PICTURE in this film presentation. Across dangerous wastes of ice and snow the camera lens follows these engineer soldiers as they construct roads stretching deeper and deeper into the Arctic. As Army civilian scientists and soldiers of the First Engineer Arctic Task Force penetrate deeper into the Arctic vastness, new problems and new dangers present themselves. In some places, the snow and ice covering the land prevent the engineers from reaching the dirt, or fill, needed for road building. Men and vehicles must travel over the snow. But as the shape of the land far below alters, hidden changes take place in the unseen snow layers underfoot. Dangerous, man-killing crevasses -- great vaults and hundred-foot caverns -- are formed. All this and more is captured on film for THE BIG PICTURE. It is a challenge, a frontier which must be conquered. American ingenuity, determination, and scientific skill are dedicated to this task.
