    Many Polies and McMurdoans remember the visit by David Attenborough to McMurdo and the South Pole during the 2009/2010 season. The project he was working on is near ready.

    “Frozen Planet” is described as “the ultimate portrait of our Earth’s polar regions.” A co-production of Discovery Channel and BBC, it was four years in the making and comes from the team behind “Planet Earth,” the acclaimed series that aired on Discovery in 2007. The “Frozen Planet” team filmed in every nation inside the Arctic and Antarctic Circles during 2,356 days in the field, 1 1/2 years at sea, more than six months on the sea ice and 134 hours beneath that ice, according to Discovery.

    It is already airing in the UK, and apparently it is excellent…and quite inspirational. In the past week I’ve had over half a dozen inquiries from Brits asking me for info about jobs at Pole… 😎

    Did you tell them, step number 1, marry an american citizen so they can have US citizenship, or hope the new contractor gets a waiver like RPSC so they can hire non-US workers in USAP! There’s always Halley and Rothera they can work at.
