Deadly Pole to Pole



Steve Backshall’s global journey begins at the top of the world when he boards an Arctic icebreaker and goes in search of the Arctic’s top predator, the polar bear.

Paddling in his kayak, Steve gets closer than planned when an inquisitive polar bear starts to stalk him.

One polar bear is frightening enough, but when a bunch of boisterous walruses with their dagger-like tusks decide to investigate Steve in his bright orange kayak, it’s time to move on in search of other Arctic predators.
