Great Polar Bear Feast – airs at 7 pm
Every year in early September, a natural phenomenon takes place on the south slope of the Arctic. Each year, about 80 polar bears gather on the frozen shores, near the village of Kaktovik, to feast upon the hunter-harvested bowhead whale remains. This film will center on the scientists and wildlife photographers that flock to this small village each year to understand the polar bears and their unusual behavior.
