I guess pretty much everyone's been through a tough patch in the dating game – moments when you wondered whether you'd ever meet up with a suitable partner. Spare a thought for the polar bear, though, obliged by nature and the unforgiving mathematics of the predator pyramid to roam for hundreds of square miles in search of a mate. What's more, both the mate and the miles are blinding white. In Frozen Planet last night, we were able to watch one bear doggedly pursuing another by literally following in her footsteps, placing each paw on to the compacted snow left by his target, in order to conserve energy. And it wasn't foreplay he was saving the energy up for but defence of his prize. When their brief liaison began, the male looked like something off a global warming poster, a Brad Pitt of polar bears. By the end, having had to break off repeatedly to punch interlopers who were eyeing up his date, he looked more like Sylvester Stallone at the end of Rocky.
