Frozen Planet inspires respect for nature and all of its inhabitants by offering a sightseeing tour of the most remote and stunningly beautiful corners of the polar regions. Viewers find themselves invested in the survival of the animals who struggle for life here, and the experience inspires thought about conservation issues.
The show chronicles polar residents' struggles to survive the extreme elements, so you'll see animals killing and eating prey. Battles over territory and mating rights are common, too, with competitors emerging bloody and injured. Animals are also shown frozen or said to have succumbed to the elements or starvation.
The content references -- and sometimes shows -- mating rituals of a variety of animals. In the case of polar bears, for instance, the couple engages in some gentle affection before concluding in the act itself, which is viewed from a rear vantage point. Nothing graphic is shown, but the narration leaves little doubt about what's going on.
