|From BBC Earth and Alastair Fothergill, Executive Producer of Planet Earth and The Blue Planet: Seas of Life, Frozen Planet is the epic tale of two disappearing wildernesses. 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 rough ocean and the ice – is unmatched anywhere else on our planet. Many of the most spectacular landscapes, charismatic animals and their behavior have never been recorded before. Filmed with the same breathtaking camera techniques as Planet Earth and Life, Frozen Planet tells the compelling story of animals such as the wandering albatross, the adelie penguin and the polar bear, and paints a portrait that will take your breath away, at a moment when, melting fast, the frozen regions of our planet may soon be changed forever.|
Editor's NoteThe set contains all seven episodes of FROZEN PLANET, the documentary devoted to showcasing both the Arctic and the Antarctic. State-of-the-art camera capture these naturally splendid but harsh locations as they undergo massive changes that very well may impact the climate for the rest of the planet. In addition to the environmental dangers for the globe, the series offers footage of animals as they adjust to these changes conditions, as well as the natural shifts that occur as the seasons change in these extreme climates. Alister Fothergill, the man who oversaw both Planet Earth and THE BLUE PLANET: SEAS OF LIFE, served as executive producer for this project as well.

On paper, a seven-part look at the frozen, polar ends of our planet might seem a tad redundant....read the full review|

|From the team that created Planet Earth comes a new, seven-part documentary called Frozen Planet.

Part six looks at mankind's interaction in these distant regions, where few dare to tread. Each looks at the dizzying, often seemingly barren, landscapes, as well as how life can carve a niche anywhere. For most people who will never venture into a climate so extreme, it's a rich glimpse into a completely alien place....read the full review|
