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 unimatched anywhere else on our planet. Yet these harsh environments are teeming with life: home to iconic animals from polar bears to Adelle penguins and from killer whales to wandering albatross. Using the latest camera technology to film on land, from the air, underwater and below the Arctic ice cap, 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.
