Penguins: Spy In The Huddle - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
FROM the makers of the brilliant Earthflight and Polar Bear – Spy on the Ice, the spy cameras are back and they’re revamped, updated and with even more gizmos on board for the brand new BBC series Penguins – Spy In The Huddle.
In this extraordinary series we visit Anatarctica and the southern oceans, where the spy cameras cleverly disguised as life size penguins infiltrate the colonies to capture the emotional and often comical lives of the most charismatic and popular bird on Earth.
Narrated by David Tennant, this exceptional three-part series proves with no doubt that penguins are one of the most entertaining animal subjects on Earth and comes to DVD on April 8 and will also be available on stunning high definition Blu-ray on April 22 courtesy of Acorn Media.
We follow the lives of three different types of penguins the Emperor, the Humboldt and the Rockhopper. The Emperor penguin has the most incredible life story of any bird and the spy cameras give this penguin’s amazing story a fresh perspective.
Whilst the Humboldt penguin lives in the hot desert regions of South America and its problems have more to do with heat than cold. The Rockhopper is one of the more entertaining penguins, nesting on cliffs in the Falklands islands they brave incredibly rough oceans to reach the shore.
The trials and tribulations of these other penguins cross-cut the narrative of the Emperor penguin, highlighting the differences at the same stage in their lives. When the Emperors huddle together to protect themselves against minus 60-degree temperatures, Humboldt penguins are tolerating plus 40-degrees in the driest desert on Earth!
While Emperors are negotiating huge snowdrifts, Rockhoppers are trying to jump up vertical cliffs Penguins: Spy In The Huddle is shot from a totally new perspective and this breathtaking series reveals what extreme survivors these engaging birds are.
