This past Tuesday PBS Distribution took audiences to the wilds of Alaska in its new documentary The Great Polar Beast Feast.

The Great Polar Bear Feast was released this Tuesday, July 5th.  The program was released in partnership with Renegade Films.  It follows a group of Polar Bears living in Alaska as they face the impending challenges of the Arctic Summer.  That is the time when the sea ice covering the region begins melting at an increasingly rapid speed.  One of the bears presented in the program is a female with two cubs.  She heads south from the Beaufort Sea to Kaktovik and is able to take part in the annual feast of whale blubber.  The other, also a female, only has one cub.  She stays put.  In turn it is forced to swim hundreds of miles north to get to the nearest ice.  In the bigger picture, the story examines the relationship between the polar bears and the Inupiat Tribe, which lives in a nearby village.

The Great Polar Bear Feast is available now on DVD.  It is retailing for MSRP of $24.99 and can be ordered at a discounted price of $19.99 online via PBS’ online store.  More information on this and other titles from PBS is available online now at:
