WATCH BBC1 TONIGHT PENGUINS PENGUINS AND MORE PENGUINS
PICK OF THE DAY BBC 1 TONIGHT SPY IN THE HUDDLE (Monday February 11th, 2013)
The tragic-comic challenges faced by three species of penguins as they waddle, toddle, hop and sledge their way towards their various breeding grounds is the focus of the first episode in this new three-part documentary series. Made by the award-winning team behind polar bear: Spy on the Ice, it uses cameras craftily disguised as life-size penguins to follow Emperor Penguins in Antarctica, Rockhoppers in the Falkland Islands and Humboldts in Peru.
While none of the birds have it easy, some fail to fulfil their destiny, such as the emperor who gets lost and shuffles off, shoulders slumped, head down, on the icy wastes alone. Circumstances continue challenging the penguins when they reach their destination, with some female emperors most unladylike in their bids to get their man.
A MUST SEE !
