'Frozen Planet' to debut on Discovery on March 18


NEW YORK (AP) -- Discovery Channel says its documentary series "Frozen Planet" will premiere March 18 with seven episodes, including a program on climate change hosted by David Attenborough.

On that seventh episode, the famed British naturalist will investigate what rising temperatures will mean for the planet and life on it, Discovery said Tuesday.

"Frozen Planet" is described as "the ultimate portrait of our Earth's polar regions." A co-production of Discovery Channel and the BBC, it was four years in the making, and comes from the team behind "Planet Earth," the acclaimed series that aired on Discovery in 2007.

"Frozen Planet" will be narrated by Alec Baldwin.
