[edit] Information

Explores The Katabatic wind, and the icebergs that support an abundance of life such as seals and penguins. Looks at the work of scientists who live there. How cold is it in stark and forbidding Antarctica? It's so brutally cold that even its summer residents, the well-dressed penguins, seem to be shutting their eyes and shivering. Nevertheless, this extended program gives you a full blast of this fierce, remote, and yet astonishingly beautiful place, exposing the mighty forces that have shaped both the continent and the rest of the Earth as well. It looks into the face of the Katabatic, the wind that decimates life, resets the landscape, and creates new weather. It also confronts the area's icy natives, the icebergs. These million-ton islands harbor an abundance of life forms but also hinder travel throughout the oceans, posing an in-the-dark danger to even huge ice-cutting ships. Finally, the program focuses ont he scientists and explorers who, braving an otherworldly environment, go to "the end of the earth" to learn more about our past and our future.
