When Greenpeace set sail in 2013 to protest the first oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean, no-one on board knew a bitter international dispute was on the horizon.

Black Ice tells the story of the 'Arctic 30' with never-before-seen footage from the moment they set sail.

Hear their thoughts and feelings on how their environmental mission turned into a global incident as they’re seized at gunpoint by Russian forces, faced with fifteen years in prison and thrust into headlines across the world.

Although shocked, their determination to stop oil drilling in the Arctic remains unchanged. They are ready to do it again.
