The Arctic is on the point of enormous, irreversible change, and this stunning DVD highlights what that means to those who live their lives there. It’s the story of the winners and losers in the great wilderness.
TV adventurer Bruce Parry has built a worldwide reputation for getting right to the heart of a subject by immersing himself in the culture and environment. So while the series documents how the region is being dramatically transformed by global warming, the focus is human rather than scientific, about people not politics.
Over the course of one bright Arctic summer, Bruce and the Bafta-winning production team travel nearly 11,000 miles through Greenland, Canada, Alaska, Russia and Northern Europe. The effects of global warming are magnified here – sea ice is melting, new land is appearing and new boundaries are being drawn.
Ways of life that have remained virtually unchanged for millennia will cease within our lifetimes, while for others the untold riches of the oil, gas and minerals slowly being revealed under the polar ice cap promise countless new opportunities.
This beautifully filmed series captures all the incredible scenery of the Arctic Circle as Bruce uncovers the fascinating stories of fishermen of the coast of Alaska, oil workers tapping the vast wealth of the Canadian interior, native hunters desperately clinging on to the last breath of their culture and scientists mapping the shrinking glaciers.
