Jon Snow begins a live nightly weekday countdown to the London 2012 Paralympic Games, a series which will feature wellknown celebrities from the worlds of sport and entertainment, as well as a look at the Paralympic Village, where more than 4,000 athletes will be staying during the Games. cycle we see remarkable footage of them filmed through the sea ice and under the water as, during the brief eight-week summer, they are forced to abandon their usual diet of ringed seals and strike out for walrus colonies made up of drooling, tusked behemoths weighing more than one-and-a-half-tonnes. Contrastingly, we learn that the key to the entire ecosystem is too small to see with the naked eye. Breathtaking.
