From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975. [Shows] " ... the Army's fight against the rugged elements of the northland--a part of the world that must be guarded. Filmed under incredibly difficult conditions in a frozen wasteland, with danger ever present, cameras of the Signal Corps unfold the story of the United States Army Transportation Corps in Greenland working in cooperation with the Government of Denmark on projects of a scientific nature, designed to contribute to our mutual defense. Air transportation has changed the shape of the earth so that these days, the shortest distance between vital areas is over the top of the globe. This is the polar concept. Once just an idea, but today a vital reality which has necessitated a new outlook for the defense of our northern extremities."--National Archives and Records Administration.
