Get ready to embark on a trip of a lifetime with the BBC Home Entertainment DVD and Blu-ray release of Frozen Planet on April 17th.
Following the Discovery Channel premiere in North America on March 18, and just in time for Earth Day, this astonishing and breathtaking seven part series is narrated by the legendary Sir David Attenborough, hailed by The Telegraph as “the father of natural history television.”
Join Emmy Award winning Executive Producer Alastair Fothergill and the team behind the groundbreaking series Planet Earth as they take you on the ultimate adventure into a breathtaking landscape. This is the Poles as you have never seen them, and may never see them again.
A BBC/Discovery Channel co-production four years in the making, Frozen Planet is ambitious and epic in scale and provides the ultimate portrait of our earth’s Polar Regions, capturing the power of natural elements and the fragile, jaw-dropping beauty of scenery unlike anywhere else in the world. This landmark high definition series brings to the screen the frozen wilderness of the polar region for what could be the last time before they change forever.
Featuring the incredible wildlife cinematography that made Planet Earth a worldwide success, Frozen Planet has taken new technology to the most extreme and remote parts of our planet capturing groundbreaking imagery above and below the ice.
Encounter spectacles that few of us will ever witness first hand. Go deep under the sea-ice into a magical world of giants, plunge into the heart of an erupting polar volcano and fly to the South Pole across the Antarctic icecap – the largest concentration of ice on earth – retracing the steps of the great Polar explorers.
Get closer than ever before to the lives of our best loved and most charismatic animal characters – polar bears, penguins, wolves and orcas, and witness the most extraordinary examples of survival against the odds that can be found anywhere on our planet.
