This is an absolutely beautiful documentary. The Antarctic has inspired awe and fascination since it was first discovered, and the charming Bardem brothers (Javier and Carlos) here provide a wonderful insight into the issues facing this white paradise, and the solutions needed. If you like David Attenborough, NatGeo or the natural world, you will love this!
