Every autumn, over 1,000 starving polar bears travel directly through the northern town of Churchill, Manitoba to reach their hunting grounds on Hudson Bay. Polar Bear Town is an innovative documentary series that follows the migration of the world’s biggest land predator, the tourists who come to witness the spectacle – and the resulting conflicts it brings with the town’s inhabitants. A combination of gorgeous, behaviour-lead, blue chip natural history and action-packed observational documentary, Polar Bear Town reveals the remarkable relationship that exists between the polar bears and the people of Churchill, Manitoba.
