My all time favorite action tv series is Strike Back, made in the UK and featuring a counter terrorism secret team that uses SAS operators.

In one episode, they were going after nukes that South Africans were preparing to activate. In the story, Israel had used South Africa to conduct their test promising SA that they would receive help to make their own. Of course, Israel reneged on the deal, but the SA scientists had learned enough from the joint venture that they were able to make a few small nukes and hide them.

Something along these lines may have happened. Israel reputedly has lots of small war heads. So far, there has not been any indication that South Africa got any of the promised nor do they have weapons at any stage of production.

Regardless, as I recall, the location of the blast was offshore South Africa, not anywhere in Antarctica.
