Operation Arctic

Storbritannia

Every year, polar bears come together on the shores of Hudson Bay in Canada, waiting for their hunting grounds to freeze over, and every year these bears wait longer and longer as climate change slowly chips away at their habitat. The coastal town of Churchill in Manitoba has experienced the changes brought about by the shrinking ice masses firsthand, with bears foraging in the streets while they wait longer for their natural habitat to resurface each winter. `Arctic Live' follows these magnificent creatures as they struggle to survive, documenting life in one of the world's most extreme environments.
