Planet Earth: Ice Worlds
Planet Earth: Ice Worlds 
Planet Earth is a BBC production with five episodes in the first series (episodes one through five) and six episodes in the second series (episodes six through eleven). Each episode examines a specific environment, focussing on key species or relationships in each habitat; the challenges they face; the behaviours they exhibit and the adaptations that enable them to survive.

Episode six examines the two poles of Planet Earth, the frigid zones of the far north and south. The north and south poles are very different systems, sharing little more than a climate. Antarctica is a giant continent crushed beneath the weight of ice kilometres thick while the Arctic is the exact opposite, an ocean crusted with a jumbled, slowly moving ice pack trapped between the frozen cliffs of the northern lands that ring it. A crust of ice which may disappear during our lifetimes, changing this fragile ecosystem forever.

The series is suitable for middle secondary students studying Science and SOSE, and for senior secondary students of Biology, Environmental Science and Geography.
