The Alaskan winter is long, dark and bitterly cold, and so the great bears sensibly choose to sleep the months away. But when they awake, they must find the food not only to fully restore themselves but to put on the pounds for the next big sleep.
"There is no greater spectacle on earth," says producer Roger Jones , "than to watch hungry bears packing into six months what other creatures do in 12." After the initial gorge there is time for mating and for play. As the bears head back to their dens some of the females are pregnant, others have given birth to the season's cubs. Soon they must prepare for another six months of abstinence.

Written by ex-Tomorrow's World presenter Kieran Prendiville, this new six-part drama is about the men and women of the oil rig Osprey Explorer. Focusing on their lives both on and off-shore, it took over two years of intensive research, involving people from all levels of the oil industry.
In tonight's first episode the crew is flown across the North Sea to the hazardous world of an exploration rig. But they are distressed to find that a colleague has died suddenly of a massive heart attack under mysterious circumstances, and a strike is threatened when a wallet goes missing.
