Spy on the Ice.


Bob Simon travels to the Arctic and reported on an innovative BBC wildlife filmmaker who has come up with novel ways of shooting up-close footage of the dangerous polar bear – without becoming polar bear bait.

The subject of Simon’s story is the legendary John Downer, who films animals using hidden spy cams, controlled remotely, and connected to motion sensors.
