[edit] Information

In some of the world’s most desolate and stunning locations, the damaging impact of human activity is evident; climate change is hitting the Arctic harder and faster than any other region on Earth. Although the North may seem remote from the population centres of the world, this – sensitive ecosystems forever altered by climate change – is where the brunt of our carbon footprint is felt the most.

Discovery HD presents ARCTIC CIRCLE, where untold riches are at stake – and maybe the future of the planet itself. As ice melts and polar bears die, this two-part documentary series – co-produced in association with the National Film Board of Canada and NHK Japan – reveals nations scrambling to claim Arctic territories and pump oil and gas from under pristine northern waters.

[edit] On Thin Ice

Chronicling the effects of climate change on the land and animal inhabitants, meet an international team of scientists who are vividly demonstrating how global warming threatens the very existence of polar bears, seals and other creatures. Later, witness huge ice shelves crumbling into the sea, polar bears struggling to survive and torrents of water flowing where there should only be ice.

[edit] Battle for the Pole

In an epic race to claim territory, meet the very people battling to pump oil and gas from beneath the pristine Arctic seabed. For the engineers constructing ice-breaking tankers and the crew of the world’s northernmost oil rig, the pursuit is all about excitement, opportunity and new frontiers. But the more energy exploited from the Arctic, the more the ice will melt – locking into a destructive cycle whose effects are only starting to become apparent and which may be unstoppable.
