BBC The Wildlife Specials: Polar Bear (1997)
Part of a series of one-off BBC wildlife specials to mark forty years of the BBC Natural History Unit,
Polar bear: The Arctic Warrior is a fascinating celebration of these powerful and formidable
predators - majestic in their natural habitat.
A land of ice and blizzards, bleak and desolate, there can be few places as remote or as beautiful
as the Arctic Circle. Punishing in the extreme, with a winter of perpetual darkness which is then
replaced by months of blazing daylight, this BBC production was the first in-depth study of the
polar bear in its harsh and unrelenting terrain.
With little polar bear behaviour ever being caught on film before, world-renowned wildlife producer
Martha Holmes, together with cameramen Doug Allan and Martin Saunders, recorded a number of
groundbreaking sequences. In evocative scenes yearlings are seen imitating their parents as they
crash into the dens of seal pups, hunt walruses and scavenge on vegetation and bird carcasses.
With the dramatic backdrop of frozen ice fields and stunning underwater shots, the unique imagery
is woven in with an informative commentary from David Attenborough. Winner of a Best Factual
Photography BAFTA in 1998, Polar Bear: The Arctic Warrior provides a comprehensive insight into the
day-to-day life of the world's largest land carnivore.
