Serious Arctic reports
At Easter in 2004 eight young explorers headed into the depths of the Arctic, where they sledged across ice floes, worked with huskies, set up camp and survived in temperatures well below freezing. Once there, they helped in conservation work to protect the polar bear.
During the expedition the explorers sent back video reports, which were transmitted on CBBC via satellite each weekday of the expedition. Here you can watch their reports.
