BBC Nature has an article that talks to the cameramen, Hugh Miller and Doug Anderson, who filmed this amazing sequence in challenging conditions – beneath the ice off the foothills of the volcano Mount Erebus, in water as cold as -2C with local seals barging past and interfering with filming.

Frozen planet is showing on UK TV on Wednesday Evenings at 21:00.
