Life in a cold climate: Norway and the Arctic (part 2)
The North Pole is a place that conjures up images of explorers, polar bears and Santa Claus. But the reality of the Arctic is less well-known than the folklore. In this special programme, our team heads north to explore life, work and politics within the Arctic Circle.
In part two of our programme, we meet:
- Director of the Arctic Frontiers Conference, Ole Øvretveit
- French Polar Explorer, Jean-Louis Etienne
We ask to what extent new industrial activity and transport routes are a danger to the environment and wildlife in the Arctic.
