Earth - Power of the Planet: Ice

Ice may be nothing more than frozen water, but it holds extraordinary power. Descending deep down a frozen waterfall, this program looks at a glacier in action from below and discovers why the huge Jacobshaven glacier is retreating, how it shapd our past and why it may now threaten our future.
