The nautical and Arctic theme of RTD’s Norway documentaries explore icy wastes and the frigid seas. Deep under the surface of the Barents Sea, James Brown discovers wartime wrecks frozen in time. The documentary about Russian miners and their families in the Barentsburg outpost on the island of Spitsbergen shows how tough it is living above the Arctic Circle. Three hundred years after the crucial battle of Gangut, RTD joins enthusiasts from Russia and Sweden as they re-enact Peter the Great's naval victory.
