Iceland: Land of Ice and Fire

Episode 5 of 10

Documentary. A look at Iceland through the eyes of the animals and people that have made this wild island home. The constant volcanic threat boils over in this explosive year.

In what turns out to be an explosive year, witness Iceland through the eyes of the animals and people that have made this wild island home.

An arctic fox family must eke out a cliff-top living, an eider farmer has his hands full playing duck dad to hundreds of new arrivals and Viking horsemen prepare to saddle up for the autumn round-up. But nature's clock is ticking, and the constant volcanic threat eventually boils over with one of Iceland's biggest eruptions in more than 200 years. This land of ice and fire will not be tamed.
