The Great Polar Bear Feast is the astonishing story of an annual natural phenomenon that occurs in early September on the north slope of the Arctic. Every year, up to eighty polar bears gather on the frozen shores, near the village of Kaktovik, to feast on the hunter-harvested bowhead whale remains. The film has extraordinary access to the work of scientist Todd Atwood, the lead polar bear scientist for the US Geological Survey. He has estimated that there has been a 40% decline in the polar bears around the South Beaufort Sea since 2006, and he is determined to find out why. With the help of GPS tracking collars and cameras he is able to track the bears through the subsequent months, getting closer to the truth about their extraordinary lives than ever before.

Watch it tonight at 8pm on WGBH 2.
