Certain images of the polar bear have lodged themselves deeply into the popular subconscious. The aerial shot of a lone one swimming out at sea where ice sheets used to be, for example, or a mother and her cubs emerging from their den after months of hibernation. But a First Science documentary gives the world a view even more rare: that of huskies scampering and cuddling with polar bears capable of eating them for a midday snack. "Two natural predators in empathy," the voice-over muses. "How is it that [these] dogs and these bears seem to have reached such a remarkable understanding?" There's just no telling. Regardless, they make the cutest darn Arctic pair ever.
