'Planet Earth's Greatest: Extreme Survivial' - Polar bears and emperor penguins show how it's doneAdd to Favorites | Planet Earth: Extreme Survival
Since 2006 it's shown us mind-blowing images of a world we rarely see, and that brilliance continues, with a twist, in "Planet Earth's Greatest: Extreme Survival," airing Sunday, May 6, on BBC America.
Can you imagine the inhospitable environs that polar bears must endure when the worst winter weather hits? How do they take a swim when the ocean is covered in ice? We'll find out. And as usual, be amazed by the visual documentation "Planet Earth" delivers. Seriously, it's as though we can see each individual strand of fur on those polar bears.
We think our world is coming to an end when we get spotty cell service in the mall food court. Can you imagine how elephants eat and drink enough to survive in the middle of the Namibian desert's dry season? The riverbeds are bone-dry, and the only water flows underground. The desert elephants know the tricks of the trade.
