The Polar Sea: You can watch, binge and surf

-It was decided early on that the TV documentary would be just one part of the The Polar Sea story, says producer Kevin McMahon.

It’s a 10-part TV documentary series, an interactive web doc, an in-depth online magazine and an experiment in the emerging field of virtual reality, The Star reports.

Besides airing 10 nights on TVO, The Polar Sea, which follows a trio of middle-aged amateur sailors on an ambitious and arduous voyage through the Northwest Passage will also be available for all Canadians to stream at http://www.tvo.org/polarsea. Borrowing a strategy from Netflix, all 10 episodes will go online Monday for binge watchers to gorge on.
