Our Frozen Planet Viewing Party

Frozen Planet (airs every Sunday night at 8 pm on Discovery)is a  breathtaking seven part DVD series is from Emmy Award winning Executive Producer Alastair Fothergill (of Planet Earth) and is narrated by the legendary Sir David Attenborough, hailed by The UK Telegraph as “the father of natural history television.”

A BBC/Discovery Channel co-production four years in the making, Frozen Planet is ambitious and epic in scale and provides the ultimate portrait of our earth’s Polar Regions, capturing the power of natural elements and the fragile, jaw-dropping beauty of scenery unlike anywhere else in the world. This landmark high definition series brings to the screen the frozen wilderness of the polar region for what could be the last time before they change forever.Featuring the incredible wildlife cinematography that made Planet Earth a worldwide success, Frozen Planet has taken new technology to the most extreme and remote parts of our planet capturing groundbreaking imagery above and below the ice.

Encounter spectacles that few of us will ever witness first hand. Go deep under the sea-ice into a magical world of giants, plunge into the heart of an erupting polar volcano and fly to the South Pole across the Antarctic icecap – the largest concentration of ice on earth – retracing the steps of the great Polar explorers.  Get closer than ever before to the lives of our best loved and most charismatic animal characters – polar bears, penguins, wolves and orcas, and witness the most extraordinary examples of survival against the odds that can be found anywhere on our planet.

Our Take: We had a BBQ over the weekend to celebrate the beautiful Spring weather we’ve finally gotten, plus to have a family movie night featuring the DVD series Frozen Planet.  My kids are familiar with watching nature documentaries and even a few of the episodes we did see were ones they’ve previously viewed!  My 6 year old’s first question about the films was, “is this a true story?”  It was sweet and innocent and throughout the evening as we enjoyed Disc 1 she was purely captivated! The visuals of the tundra, the amazing colors of the sky, the idea that the sun only shines half the year, plus the amazing animals all left us speechless and quiet as we watched the first disc.My son and husband had seen a few scenes in the weeks since the shows debuted on the Discovery channel, but left the surprises for me and my 6 year old to watch for ourselves.  The spectacular cinematography just overwhelmed us, especially as they flew over the active volcano on Mt. Erabus so carefully, such a risky flight.  Other scenes that moved us was the polar bear fight, the bison/wolves chase, and  all the penguins (especially those who were thieves stealing rocks). The caves and the ice formations were to unique, while we just held our breath as we watched the divers beneath the ice covered waters filming the most unique creatures we’ve seen.The Freeze Frame segments that went behind the scenes and showed us the utter friendliness of the killer whales surprising the cameramen and the cameramen that were dodging the scary 100+mph winds was really interesting! Watching the first disc last night, the most spectacular story that is still in our minds today was the Wooly Bear Caterpillar’s 14 year rebirth or “rising from the dead” season after season to finally embark on it’s life as a moth!  Truly amazing.  We cannot wait to get to the final 2 discs in the series.

We were sent DVDs, movie themed memorabilia, plus a gift card to cover the food for our viewing party, all opinions are our own.
