19. Yes
And also got it here we've got on BBC iplayer here too for 7 days forward from that showing.

Each of us would attach our own significance. To me it was two issues. Firstly the Arctic icecap has reduced in size by 30% since 1980 and the thickness of the remainder has halved. Less ice means less reflection of the suns rays and higher temperatures as a result. Secondly water on top of the pure water glaciers is now more predominant - that water eventually finds its way to the bottom of the glacier and accelerated its demise as it acts as a lubricant. Its glacier melt which will increase sea levels.

There some beautiful photography in that episode and some touching moments such as Attenborough sitting down with penguins and also stroking an anesthetized polar bear which had had a tracker fitted.

I've ordered the complete Blu-ray set which is released here in the UK tomorrow.
