Today on Far Future Horizons we present the third episode of a breathtaking documentary series titled the Human Planet that explores how humans have learned to adapt in the frigid wastes of the Arctic North.

Human Planet is an eight part British television documentary series produced by the BBC with co-production from Discovery and BBC Worldwide.



The Arctic is the harshest environment on Earth, little food grows, it’s dark for months on end, and temperatures stay well below freezing for much of the year. Yet four million people manage to survive here. Human Planet tells remarkable stories of extraordinary people who make their homes in nature’s deep freeze.

In springtime, Amos and Karl-Frederik set out across the sea ice with their dogs to catch a real-life sea monster: a Greenland shark! Inuit mussel-gatherers venture underneath the sea ice at low tide for a perilous race against time as they gather their food.

And the children of Churchill, Manitoba, set out on the most dangerous trick or treating Halloween in the world: they risk coming face-to-face with deadly polar bears on the streets of their town. Who’ll get the tastiest snack?



Human Planet is available on DVD from Amazon.com in the United States and Amazon.co.uk in the United Kingdom.
