New BBC2 Programme: Operation Iceberg
In a forthcoming BBC2 2-part programme, Operation Iceberg, Helen, Chris Packham, Andy Torbet, and Chris Van Tulleken join a team of scientists as they investigate the birth, life and death of icebergs. They were on the ice and at sea for six weeks, investigating the science of glaciers, how glaciers produce icebergs and why icebergs matter for our polar regions. It was an amazing expedition, connecting many strands of polar science and involving plenty of ice adventures. Filming took place in July and August 2012. See the videos, photos and diaries of the filming of Operation Iceberg The two programmes are scheduled for broadcast on BBC2 at 8pm on 30 October and 1 November 2012.
