The cold here on the Artic pack ice seem to penetrate so deep and so fast that no matter what you do it is difficult to recover from. Joe was constantly battling the cold not only in his body and fingers, but also with his camera gear. We were constantly amazed that his cameras didn't just give up. The secret of course is layered clothing, and lots of chemical pocket warmers. I was amazed at how comfortable the local Inupiat were in these extreme temperatures. Rather like the polar bear, they have acclimated beautifully to this hostile environment.""Bears of the Last Frontier" premieres on PBS Sunday, May 8, 2011 at 8pm and is part of the 29th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS.
