Polar Bear: Spy on the Ice

You have to watch this now!!!!!!!

On BBC1 8pm until 9pm.

One of the most fascinating natural history documentaries I have EVER seen!!!

"Shot mainly using spy cameras, this film gets closer than ever before to the world's greatest land predator.

Icebergcam, Blizzardcam and Snowballcam are a new generation of covert devices on a mission to explore the Arctic islands of Svalbard in Norway. Backed up by Snowcam and Driftcam, these state-of-the-art camouflaged cameras reveal the extraordinary curiosity and intelligence of the polar bear."

  5. It certainly was - one of the best documentaries I have seen for a long time!
