Exclusivity of the story on Amundsen’s South Pole success

Old Aftenposten tabloid from 1912

Aftenposten gives heavy coverage to research work done on the Arctic and Antarctic over several years.

The newspaper also distinguishes itself from a news perspective when Roald Amundsen reaches the South Pole in 1911. Together with Tidens Tegn, Aftenposten has ‘exclusive rights’ to the story. Aftenposten owns the flag that Amundsen planted on the South Pole.
