Narrated by David Attenborough and from the award-winning team behind Planet Earth comes the ultimate portrait of the earth's Polar Regions. 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 unmatched anywhere else on our planet. Yet these harsh environments are teeming with life: home to iconic animals from polar bears to emperor penguins and from killer whales to wandering albatrosses. Using the latest camera technology to film on land, from the air, underwater and below the ice caps, 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. With both Poles under grave threat from climate change, this extraordinary series may be the last chance to witness these great wildernesses before they change forever.

This film traces the history of the base, which began unwittingly with early explorers like Scott and Amundsen and their quest to be the first humans to reach the South Pole, dragging tools and supplies behind them. Today, modern scientists have access to much more hi-tech instruments and we meet a team working on one of the most extreme scientific projects on earth.||21:13||Series Only||View in iTunes|

I really wasn't expecting this from a documentary. The camera scenes are so amazing that it makes me wonder whether they're fake. The animals are surprisingly funny and there are some exciting chases between pray and predator. I found it really interesting, and I'm a 13 year old boy who mostly likes action. Seriously, it's not what it seems!!!
Great entertainment for the kids!
Spectacular images caught on film. It even made my 6 year old son put down the iPad and actually watch the entire episode. He wants more!
The filmography is utterly amazing, in hd it looks amazing, and Attenborough... amazing presenter
