Abstract:

Program 1: The End of the Earth: Shows the fierce, remote, and astonishingly beautiful part of the earth. Look into the face of the Katabatic, the downward sloping wind that decimates life and dictates the weather. Then look at icebergs at the edge of the sea, these vast platforms of ice are the source of life for seals, whales, krill, penguins and petrels, but they also have a life of their own. Program 2: Under Antarctic Ice: Beneath the surface of stunningly cold water are an abundance of life forms and ice scapes. Hillary Swank narrates encounters with 30-foot tentacles, killer whales, and more in this fascinating look under the deep blue sea.
