Plot
1x01 - To The Ends Of The Earth:
David Attenborough travels to the end of the earth, taking viewers on an extraordinary journey across the polar regions of our planet, North and South. The Arctic and Antarctic are the greatest and least known wildernesses of all - magical ice worlds inhabited by the most bizarre and hardy creatures on earth. Our journey begins with David at the North Pole, as the sun returns after six months of darkness. We follow a pair of courting polar bears, which reveal a surprisingly tender side. Next  [...] (More)
1x02 - Spring:
After months of darkness the sun returns. The landscape is dynamically transformed and millions of migrants join the hardy residents as they find mates and begin to breed.
1x03 - Summer:
Summer creates a window of opportunity that attracts hordes of visitors who cram a lifetime of drama into a few short months as they feed, fight and rear their young.
1x04 - Autumn:
Polar landscapes are transformed as the big freeze returns. Most animals leave on epic journeys, some now battle to breed, and for the hardy few it’s a time of opportunity.
1x05 - Winter:
During winter most animals abandon the polar regions, but a few extreme survivors remain. This is the story of their strategies and battles to endure the planet’s harshest winters.

David Attenborough reveals how scientists measure the changes in the polar regions and what they mean for the animals and people who live there, as well as for the whole planet.
