18. Frozen Planet
Another British nature documentary from David Attenborough is a visual masterpiece. This series begins at the North Pole where the sun has returned after a six-month absence. The rest of the series takes us through the seasons with spring in the polar regions being the second episode.
Then it’s summer where penguins and other animals raise their young and get them aware of the world while the midnight sun is out. Fall comes and polar bears scurry to prepare for the deep freeze that’s looming. The winter episode looks at the penguins and others who remain in the polar regions in the thick of the deep freeze.
The series closes with a look at the reasons why humans are drawn to the farthest reaches of the world.
