Frozen Planet: Season 1: Episode 6 -- We reveal the extraordinary riches and wonders that have kept people coming to the Polar Regions for thousands of years. Most Arctic people live in Siberia. On the coast, traditional people still hunt walrus from open boats, but today's settlers are drawn to the Arctic by its abundant minerals. Above, the spectacular Northern lights can disrupt power supplies so scientists monitor it constantly.

Absolutely brilliant work, 12 April 2012
Author: Bert45 from New Zealand

I was looking forward to this BBC series and I was not in any way disappointed. The work that went in to bringing us these wonderful visions of the polar regions is amazing. Thankfully, in New Zealand, we saw the David Attenborough-narrated version as it was meant to be. No disrespect to Alec Baldwin, who narrated the US version, but Sir David has been there and done that in wildlife film-making for the best part of 60 years. He KNOWS what he's talking about. I'm very aware of the "controversy" that surrounds the seventh episode titled On Thin Ice, and the apparent reluctance of US TV to show it because it deals with climate change. My advice is: don't let anyone tell you that this is a piece of climate change propaganda. It's not. It simply lays out the facts in a non-judgmental way and backs them up with historical photography and clear satellite imagery. Watch it and make up your own mind.
