The Arctic and Antarctic remain the greatest wildernesses on Earth. The scale and beauty of the scenery and the power of the elements—the weather, the ocean and the ice—is unmatched anywhere else on our planet.

The Poles are also home to many of the most charismatic animals, from polar bears to emperor penguins, and wolves to wandering albatrosses.

Using the latest camera technology on land, the air and underwater, Frozen Planet captures the drama of their lives in the most intimate detail.
