101 East visits Antarctica where an extraordinary international community live, work and play together. But can it last?

Antarctica’s brutal landscape is home to an extraordinary international community. 

Putting their national interests aside, 14 countries are united in pursuing scientific research into climate change. And Asia is leading the way – with China and South Korea investing heavily into their remote stations. 

101 East gains a rare glimpse into the lives of those who work on this wild frontier of science. 

By day, scientists wrestle wildlife and the weather, but at night they relax with salsa dancing, basketball and braving Russian ice baths.

But with mineral riches under the ice, will profits end this unique cooperation?
