A fascinating look at the cool world of decorative ice. It may only be frozen water but a massive increase in demand for everything from corporate product launches to dramatic party decorations has made ice exclusive, expensive and a hot property all year-round. Frozen: Extreme Ice Sculpture lifts the freezer lid on the fragile world of luxury ice, meeting those who work with it, those who manage it and those who want it at any cost. We journey to the Swedish Arctic to see an extraordinary ice hotel being built from its surroundings. Work is behind schedule, affected by the weather. Will it be ready in time for its first guests? In London, a car with sculpted frozen wheels is being rolled out for an ad campaign, but can they take the strain? And, when a professional sculptor creates his masterpiece in ice, will what is soon to be a puddle of water, still sell for tens of thousands of pounds? Meanwhile, Norwegian entrepreneur Jan Helge Ostensen is chipping away at the Svartisen glacier in the Arctic Circle to create the purest possible ice cubes. He's hoping to sell 12 for $100- 150 in London's most exclusive hotels, positioning them as the ultimate accompaniment to a luxurious drink. Will he strike a deal?
