I missed this on tv but would like to show it to my class. They are 11 - 13 yr olds. Is it managable for them?

My 14 year old watched it on television with us and loved it but then he is very keen on science, might be above some younger children's heads as can be a little technical if not interested. I think a summary version would be most suitable for you to show.

Perhaps too boring for 11 - 14s. Spectacular visuals, but lots and lots of Mr Stewart talking to camera and 'getting in the way'. Like a teacher! (I'm joking.) You constantly feel as if you want to look over his shoulder at the landscapes and not at his fancy anoraks / ice boots / walking boots. (Good for a sense of scale, though, sometimes.) A voiceover would have been just as good, most of the time, 'Life' style. Apologies to Iain for that.
Having said that, on a recent car journey I was able to show off / bore everyone by talking them through how the yearly levels of Arctic snow, separated by a line of brown 'melted' bits like the rings of a tree (unquote), go deeper ands deeper, and harder and harder, until they turn to solid ice, so something must be going in. Next stop, that planet Blu-Ray by the academic guy with nice teeth, designer jeans and a Northern accent.
