Close Encounters Of The Polar Bear Kind.

In case you missed it here’s that now infamous clip from the BBC series The Polar Bear Family & Me where wildlife filmmaker Gordon Buchanan comes face-to-face with a hungry polar bear.

Taking a leaf out of old Ron Burgundy’s book Buchanan sealed himself up in a perspex case of emotion which was dubbed the ‘Ice Cube’. Sitting inside the transparent housing, which was placed deliberately next to a seal’s breathing hole on the ice, Gordon had the close encounter with a large hungry female polar bear who seemed intent on cracking the box open like a Kinder Surprise egg and eating the delicious human inside.
