Antarctica is a mysterious continent. Remote, hostile, and virtually uninhabited. It is the coldest, driest and windiest place on Earth, surrounded by the roughest oceans. Hardly anything can live in this place, yet strange and wonderful creatures thrive here in great numbers. And most remarkable: what happens here affects us all.

BBC Earth used the latest film techniques to film under the ice of almost 2 meters thick. There we see an incredible spectacle of thousands of starfish trying to avoid the growing ice, dancing jellyfish engaged in a dance of death and flamboyant nudibranchs looking for love. We swim with playful seals, soar above mountain peaks and vast penguin colonies and see the largest gathering of whales ever filmed. Things are busy in Antarctica and the surrounding islands; obese elephant seals defend their harems, playful penguins search for their young in the millions of colonies, and leopard seals demonstrate their impressive hunting techniques.
