David Attenborough braves mountainous seas, blizzards and temperatures of -60 degrees Celsius for this new six-part natural history of Antarctica.
It's the coldest, wildest, most lonely place on earth. In winter the temperature drops to below -70 and winds reach 100mph; only 800 people live year-round on this land one-and-a-half times the size of Europe. As the sea freezes over in the depths of the winter, the continent effectively doubles in size.
And yet this inhospitable wasteland supports abundant wildlife. Penguins by the million, thousands of whales and half the world's seal population live here, feeding on the swarms of krill In the ocean surrounding the ice. On the outer islands wandering albatrosses and king penguins can also be found, raising their sturdy, slow-growing chicks.
Three years of filming using many technical innovations has resulted, in the words of series producer Alastair Fothergill , in "revolutionary pictures, better than anything you have ever seen from Antarctica".

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
