Synopsis

As you might have guessed from the title, this isn't your average nature documentary. When legendary director Werner Herzog journeys to Antarctica, the people he meets there are just as fascinating as the wildlife. He stays at the McMurdo science station, where over a thousand researchers and scientists live, not in igloos, but in climate-controlled housing - they even have their own bowling alley and radio station. Herzog's distinctive voiceover provides the perfect guide to this weird and wonderful end of the world.
