From Library Staff

Captures extraordinary views of vast frozen landscapes and animal behavior impossible to see from the ground. Goes under the ice, into the heart of glaciers, inside volcanic ice crystal caves, and into the remote interior of the Antarctic continent.

One-third of our planet is frozen and it is the last true frontier. This seven-part series features stunning scenery, magnificent animals, superb musical background and striking camera work.

The first episode of disk 1 is substantially unwatchable because of scratching. How does one scratch a DVD? One puts it into to the player, presses 'close' and then presses 'play'. How on earth could it get scratched?
Otherwise a visually stunning series.

Stunning, Gorgeous AND narrated by David Attenborough. A must-see in my book!

As per usual, BBC does a stunning series based on the artic and antartic regions. I do find it is not as cohesive as some of their other series, most notably Planet Earth and Life. Still worth watching - also love the extra episode that was added.
