In 2011, Frozen Planet gave BBC viewers an unprecedented insight into life in the Poles.
Now, 11 years later, Frozen Planet II - presented by Sir David Attenborough – returns to the Arctic and Antarctic to observe the amazing species that thrive there. But, going further than Series 1, it also explores life beyond the Poles – witnessing the wildlife dramas that play out in all the world’s coldest regions: our high mountains, frozen grasslands, snowbound forests, and ice-cold oceans.
These are the last true wildernesses on earth; places so challenging for survival that only a heroic cast of animals can live here. From polar bears to penguins, Siberian tigers to snow monkeys, each species must overcome unique challenges to survive their extreme environments.
Filmed in ultra-high definition using the very latest camera technology, and featuring dramatic new behaviours, intimate stories, and sensational natural spectacles filmed for the very first time, this six-part series is a chance to experience the wonder of our planet’s frozen realms as they stand on the brink of major change.
As temperatures rise at an unprecedented rate our frozen planet is literally vanishing before our eyes. The series reveals the true impact on both wildlife and humans. We meet scientists who’ve dedicated their lives to understanding what these changes mean - not just for the animals and people who live there, but for the planet as a whole.
