Starving polar bear attacks BBC cameraman in pod in Arctic Norway. Seriously, you approach someone in that contraption and what the heck do you think is going to happen!
The perspex ‘ice cube’ the photographer was housed in for much of the filming was ‘pretty much bombproof’. But there was a risk it could get brittle when very cold - making the task of filming the polar bears even more perilous. He said: ‘There’s no doubt polar bear cubs are the cutest animals in the world and even the adults have an aesthetic which isn’t threatening.
Trust the BBC to remain calm while a 9’ tall man eater is a sheet of perspex away from eating you for dinner.
