A BBC/Discovery Channel Co-Production. For nearly four years, the Frozen Planet film crew put themselves at the mercy of the elements, facing fierce polar winds up to 148 miles per hour and bone-chilling temperatures as low as -58°F. The camera teams' experiences were sometimes hair-raising and at other times humorous. They were stalked by hungry polar bears, befriended by curious leopard seals, and driven nearly mad by month after month of endless squawking by thousands upon thousands of Adélie penguins. All to get the shot — and they did! NOTE: This program contains content that portrays animals in their natural environment and may be disturbing or inappropriate for some viewers.
