Show Summary

Immortals of the Arctic is a 47 minute documentary by Canadian Geographic. This documentary is a part of the National Kingdom Collection series and was aired for the first time in the year 2001. This documentary is about the hunt of Bowhead Whales by a group of scientists who want to find out more about this yet to be researched mammal. Different groups of biologists travel along with their teams in different parts of the Arctic to hunt Bowhead Whales. John C. Craig George, Matt Irinaga and Larry Dueck are among the researchers who are looking for answers about these whales. The dying age of a Bowhead Whale is yet to be discovered as no one has ever found one that died of old age. But things take a new turn when one of the groups catch a 50 ton whale. Biologists take down the samples for the purpose of research. The answer to the age of the Bowhead Whales was behind its eyes, through which biologists figured out the age of the hunted whale as 211 years. Scientists carry on tagging the whales to track their movement and understand migration patterns.
