Frozen Planet

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Frozen Planet is the exciting successor to the ground-breaking Planet Earth and Blue Planet series, and has been created by the same award-winning team. Most of us will never travel to these great wildernesses and, even for those lucky enough to have gone, this portrait of our polar regions will surprise and astound.

Take a journey to the last truly great wilderness regions. From the Great Melt in Spring to the 24-hour summer, the beginning of the Big Freeze and long dark winter, this epic series will follow the dramatic landscapes and the emotional life stories of the animals that live there.

Following the stories of the polar bear and wolf in the North Pole and the adelie penguin and killer whale in the South Pole, we see how they survive these extremes, how they feed, mate and rear their young. Using the latest hi-tech cameras, the series will reveal animal behaviour as we've never seen before - the long, tender mating ritual of the polar bears, the vast penguin colonies, the Arctic's most impressive hunter, the wolf as well as eider ducks, gentle seals and socialable ravens.

But the real star of this series is the ice and Frozen Planet will tell its story, from its formation to its movement and its beauty. And of course what the future holds for it.

This is the last chance to explore our Frozen Planet before it changes forever.

From Publishers Weekly

02 January 2012 – BBC Earth spent three years working on a documentary series on the poles, sending crews to Antarctica and the Arctic to film wildlife, the small groups of people that eke out an existence there, and the ever-shrinking ice itself. This companion piece to the Frozen Planet documentary includes dozens of stunning photographs, a seasonal exploration of the frozen climes, and a section detailing the production of the show and the book. Fans of the series or nature documentaries in general will find this tome enthralling as an educational text and as a stunning collection of images. From detailed information on polar bear gestation and hibernation habits to a remarkable photo sequence of a pod of killer whales collaborating to kill a seal, the book sheds light on day-to-day life in the harshest of climates. The self-awareness of the photographers and producers (as evidenced by commentary on the process and pitfalls of shooting in these regions) creates an interesting dialogue about the relationship between humans and nature. Indeed, the volume ends with sobering data about climate change and its impact on the poles, rendering the previous breathtaking photographs as evidence of the beauty the world stands to lose if climate change is left unchecked.
