Which are the scariest - snow leopard or leopard seals? How do you get close to the biggest fish in the sea?

Doug, who has filmed for TV’s Blue Planet, will share behind the scene stories for all the family with highlights from the most challenging assignments of his 35 years filming wildlife in the remotest places on Earth.
