I thoroughly enjoyed this series. I assume it will have been re-edited for the US market. For one thing I do not know if Gordon is well known in the US. He is widely known in the UK for work on such programs as Spring Watch, Autumn Watch and Lost Land of the Volcano.
You can read my review of The Polar Bear Family and Me here but be warned, there are spoilers throughout and big spoilers as you go through the article.
If you like polar bears, this is for you!
