Over the past two years (1988 and 1989) the 'greenhouse effect' has stormed to the top of the international agenda.  In that time "Can Polar Bears Tread Water?" has been tracking the cause and dangers of climate change.  But the real problem addressed bty the programme is the mass migration of people displaced by effects of climate change.

This film includes the views of scientists, politicians and people affected by climate change in Britain, America, Canada, Chine, India, Russia and Bangladesh.
