The cameras used for a documentary on polar bears were designed to be as unobtrusive and resilient as possible.
Polar Bear: Spy on The Ice used hi-tech "spy cams" to get as close as possible to the bears during summer in the Arctic islands of Svalbard.
But while they were built to withstand temperatures as low as -40C, in the end most could not cope with the curiosity displayed by their subjects.
Polar Bear: Spy on The Ice is broadcast on BBC One at 2000 GMT on Wednesday 29 December - or afterwards on BBC iPlayer.

this woulda never happened!
I’m in stitches!
Well, back to the drawing board.
News flash: Imperial probe droids destroyed by ice creatures.
They’re gonna need a bigger snowball ... cam.
Large, powerful, intelligent predators with time on their hands. Foreign object to play with.
Polar bears are land-based Orcas. They’ll pretty much do whatever they want to do.
“If they had just used polarized lenses on the cameras..”
Brilliant plus! Where’s the grant writer when we need him?
This is hilarious. I like seeing the final seconds of video captured by each camera.
GO POLAR BEARS SIR!
That made me laugh, thank you. I think it was the combination of the pleasant British voice explaining all the elaborate Wiley Coyote camera plans while the bears happily ripped the cameras up.
Ridiculous. These are the so called experts telling me how these animals are going to be extinct any day now with global warming and they manufacture these stupid Rube Goldberg designed cameras to “fool” the bears?
Scotty, beam me up.
Yes, that made me chuckle.
2 hours of polar bears murdering and eating baby seals only pics on camera's meant to study polar bear life.
Project cost taxpayers 1.2 million Euro's over 3 year period.
Back in London, more store windows broken and several cars set aflame due to government cuts. Protesters dressed in polar bear suits. Peta women naked in protest of men wearing fur!
News media gets 30 minutes of footage of naked Peta protesters .........for free!
Now back to our regualr programing of termites laying millions of eggs in a dead log. Only cost 200k Euro's and 6 months to make.
