'but actually I'm going to do it in real style. This

is, after all, the realisation of a lifelong dream.

'This is not your average taxi rank

at the station.

'I'm in the hands of Tore

Christiansen and his 11 sled dogs. '

Good morning. I'm Joanna.

How nice to see you, Tore.

These are wonderful dogs. What kind are they?

Alaskan huskies. Alaskan huskies? Yes, so...

They like to run.

They like to run? Yes.

This has been the most extraordinary journey,

racing along in this beautiful little sled

with Tore shouting instructions to these 11

fine huskies. They don't like stopping to rest.

They just want to be on the journey.

When we're running over virgin snow,

their footprints are blue.

Pale blue.

It's the most extraordinary way to cross the

Arctic Circle, but I haven't crossed it yet!

'The Arctic Circle, like the Equator, is an

imaginary line right around the roof of the world.

'It marks the point at which you are so far

north that on one day a year, the Winter Solstice,

'the sun never rises, while at

the height of summer it never sets.

'As well as being imaginary,

the trouble with the Arctic Circle

'is that, because the Earth shifts slightly

on its axis, it has a habit of moving.

'I need to find 66 degrees

'the precise latitude for

the Arctic Circle this very day,

'as supplied to me

by the Greenwich Royal Observatory.

'Bearing due north, I hope orbiting satellites tell my

fancy satnav GPS machine when I hit the right spot. '

Oh! Stop, stop, stop!

Just here.


I could put this down here.

Stay, scarf. There.

There. Stay, scarf.


Arctic Circle.


I've walked into the Arctic Circle!

That's just... That's just the ordinary

world. And this is the Arctic Circle!

And that...

.. is due north.
