Contents:
"The Arctic mission: a scientific and filmmaking expedition through the fragile by treacherous Arctic ice. This breathtakingly beautiful environment has become the first victim of global warming. Like other coastal populations around the world, the people and animals of the North have had to adapt. But at what price?" (Container)
DVD 1. The Great Adventure = La grande traversée / directors, Jean Lemire, Thierry Plantanida (90 min.) "Follow Jean Lemire and his crew on their five-month voyage from Montreal to Vancouver, taking their scientific expedition through the treacherous Northwest Passage. Against the backdrop of breathtaking scenery, the crew face exceptionally cold weather and perilous navigation.
DVD 2. People of the Ice = Le peuple de la glace / director, Carlos Ferrand (52 min.) "For over 4000 years, the Inuit have lived in the Arctic environment, but global warming threatens their habitat and culture. This episode looks at climate change through their eyes."
DVD 3. Washed Away = A la dérive / director, Patricio Henriquez (52 min.) "Global warming causes ocean levels to rise, jeopardizing whole islands that may be submerged. We meet two island communities struggling to prevent the disappearance of land: one in Alaska and the other in the South Pacific."
DVD 4. Climate on the Edge = Menaces sur le toit du monde / director, Alain Belhumeur (52 min.) "Climatologists, glaciologists, astrophysicists and oceanographers help explain the dynamics of climate change. The Arctic is on the front line: as temperatures increase, the melting of the permafrost releases greenhouse gases that affect the whole planet."
DVD 5. Lords of the Arctic = Les seigneurs de l'Arctique / director, Caroline Underwood (52 min.) "Polar bears depend upon ice to thrive in their Arctic environment. As temperatures rise, will the region's wildlife and northern plants be able to adapt?"
Narrated by David Suzuki.
