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.
