Close Encounter With A Polar Bear
Wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan comes face to face with a polar bear who wants to feed her cubs.
The 1,000kg female polar bear spent nearly 45 minutes trying to get to the cameraman.
Gordon Buchanan, who has filmed the world’s deadliest creatures for 20-years, described this as his scariest ever experience:
"A lot of people think that carnivores are intrinsically dangerous but most aren’t - there’s a minimal risk and attacks are the exception.
But polar bears are different - without a doubt she wanted me for lunch. She was so persistent, looking for a weak spot for almost 45 minutes."
Location: Svalbard (Arctic Norway)
