Every autumn, 1,000 polar bears share the small town of Churchill, Manitoba, with humans until the Arctic ice returns to Hudson Bay. It’s a relatively peaceful coexistence, but this year will prove more challenging than ever. A longer summer has led to an earlier, and larger, influx of bears, and the fatal attack of a beloved dog has the community on edge. Follow these majestic beasts, the local guides who make their living from them, and the men and women who work round-the-clock to protect them through one especially tough season (46 min).
