Narrated by Sir David Attenborough and from the award-winning team behind Planet Earth
& Blue Planet
comes the ultimate portrait of the earth's Polar regions.
The Arctic and Antarctic remain the greatest wildernesses on Earth. The scale and beauty of the scenery and the sheer power of the elements – the weather, the ocean and the ice – is unmatched anywhere else on our planet. Yet these harsh environments are teeming with life: home to iconic animals from polar bears to emperor penguins and from killer whales to wandering albatrosses.
Using the latest camera technology to film on land, from the air, underwater and below the ice caps, Frozen Planet
follows their fascinating lives throughout the seasons as they struggle to survive. With spectacular polar landscapes and amazing animal behaviour, often filmed for the first time, it captures the drama of an extreme natural world.
With both Poles under grave threat from climate change, this extraordinary series may be the last chance to witness these great wildernesses before they change forever.
Frozen Planet (DVD) Presented by the world's most respected naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, this epic documentary series explores the spectacular truth behind the Earth's polar regions. Taking viewers on an exploration of the Arctic and Antarctic regions, Attenborough reveals two striking worlds that are teeming with wildlife despite the locales' subzero temperatures and brutal conditions. From polar bears and killer whales through to albatrosses, the glory of the poles is revealed through the latest in camera technology, taking the viewer high into the skies before plunging them down into the freezing depths beneath the ice caps. An unforgettable viewing experience, the award-winning Frozen Planet shows us a world that is extraordinary, magical and increasingly under threat from man-made pollution. Did You Know? • The series won BAFTA TV Awards for Best Editing (Factual), Best Photography (Factual) and Best Sound (Factual) at the 2011 award ceremony • The crew endured genuine hardship during the making of the series; the risk of flying in bad weather; being trapped for four days in a remote outpost being battered by 200mph winds; becoming so obsessed with not missing potentially vital shots that they began suffering from sleep deprivation, sometimes working in shifts that saw the crew going non-stop for 36 hours before sleeping for 12. • Penguins can be a pain according to the show's makers - walking up to tents and tripping over the tent wires continually; male penguins making off with priceless camera lens to impress female penguins, and one particularly frisky fellow mistaking a production microphone for a mate... What's In The Box? • Seven episodes with a combined running time of 350 minutes • Exclusive footage and extras including features on the scientific exploration of the South Pole.
