Featuring the world’s foremost polar scientists and discovering previously inaccessible areas and new life on the ocean seabed, The Polar Explorer showcases the latest climate change discoveries from the Arctic and Antarctic.

The film and its findings were invited by the United Nations Environment Programme to present to delegates attending COP16, the Climate Change Conference in Cancun in December 2010. Will this documentary influence policy-makers and result in a new resolution being adopted? This question is answered in the programme’s dramatic conclusion.
