Attenborough - Life in the Freezer
Antarctica is the wildest, coldest, most isolated continent
on Earth. Covered and surrounded by 90% of the world's ice,
its 14 million square kilometers are doubled each winter
by the freezing of the sea. The average temperature at the
South Pole is -49 Centrigrade, dropping to -70 and below
in mid winter. Yet this inhospitable landscape is home to
a surprisingly rich variety of wildlife, much of it unique
to the region.
David Attenborough and his 20-strong crew spent three years
braving mountainous seas. 160kph blizzards, plummeting temperatures
and glaciers the size of cathedrals for this first complete
natural history of Antarctica. Venturing into previously
inaccessible territory, they used the very latest technology
and techniques to capture on land and under water the glories
of this magnificent continent.
With more scenes of sheer beauty, passion, comedy, aggression
and sadness than any drama. Life in the Freezer is an unmissable
opportunity to experience the last true wilderness on earth.
