More About this Product
A BBC/Discovery Channel Co-Production. On the Siberian coast, traditional Arctic residents continue to risk life and limb to hunt walruses, while the Inuits of Northeast Canada take advantage of extreme tides to access mussels beneath the sea ice. Antarctica, on the other hand, is so remote that it was not until one hundred years ago that people first stepped foot on the continent. Today, robot submarines dive deep beneath the sea ice in search of new life forms while polar scientists explore living ice crystals in snow caves on the slope of an active volcano.
