The Arctic is on the point of enormous, irreversible change. The effects of global warming are magnified in this area, as the sea ice is melting, new land is appearing and with it, fresh boundaries are being drawn. Indigenous ways of life that have remained virtually unchanged for millennia will cease within our lifetimes - but for others, the untold riches of the oil, gas and minerals slowly being revealed under the polar ice cap promise countless opportunities. Over the course of one summer, Bruce Parry immersed himself in the lives of the Arctic's people. From the fishermen in the Bering Sea, to oil workers tapping the vast wealth of the Arctic reserve, native hunters desperately clinging on to the last breath of their culture, bush pilots, miners, fire-fighters and scientists mapping the ever-shrinking ice cap.

A BBC Production.
