"The ultimate portrait of the earth's Polar Regions."
In 2012 the Discovery Channel will broadcast "Frozen Planet," the long-awaited third installment in the BBC Earth series of which "Blue Planet: Seas of Life" and "Planet Earth: As You've Never Seen It Before" won multiple Emmy awards. Airing in seven installments, "Frozen Planet" will be a major television event drawing millions of viewers.
"Frozen Planet" is the companion book to the TV series. It follows the world's best wildlife photographers as they capture animal behavior and landscapes never seen before, including Antarctica's active volcanoes and the previously restricted Russian Arctic. Custom-designed HD cameras allowed undisturbed observation. Traveling by nuclear submarine, military helicopter, icebreaker and snowmobile, the filmmakers endured piercing polar winters and the dangerous summer "melt" to record what may be the dying days of Earth's frozen regions.
"Frozen Planet" has seven sections: Pole to PoleSpring: Life Wakes UpSummer: Life MultipliesAutumn: Life RetreatsWinter: Life Closes DownOn Thin IceTales from the Poles
It follows four polar residents that reveal the health of the planet and what the future may hold: the polar bear and arctic fox in the north; the Adelie penguin and wandering albatross in the south. "Behind the scenes" segments describe the making of the TV series.
Some of the fascinating stories are: Icebergs the size of New York skyscrapersThe first record of killer whales hunting in packs80,000 smelly macaroni penguins on Bird IslandA very rare blond fur seal pupSatellite tagged wandering albatrosses raising their chicksKing penguins catching a waveA lone white wolf eyeing a photographerGrass-eating polar bearsThe creeping glaciers of SvalbardAdelie penguin chicks learning to swimKiller whales using their tails to wash seals off ice flowsCanada's Barrenlands coming to life in the springA polar bear stalking a film crewScuba diving with beluga whales in the Russian ArcticThe elusive Greenland shark
Sales of the companion book to the "Blue Planet" television series topped 6 million dollars. "Frozen Planet" promises to be an equal or greater success. The important topic, the expected demand from Discovery Channel viewers and an excellent price make it an essential purchase.
