On January 21, 1958, Sir Vivian (then Dr) Fuchs and Sir Edmund Hillary met at the South Pole amid a worldwide blaze of controversy. It was the half way point of the Commonwealth Trans-Antarctic Expedition's first successful crossing of the Frozen Continent -- but Hillary and his team, driving modified farm tractors, had made a "hellbent dash to the Pole" (Hillary's words) five weeks earlier, pipping Fuchs and his team in their more sophisticated Snocats.
