From the makers of Earthflight and Polar Bear - Spy on the Ice, the spycameras are back with this latest BBC series. This time they travel to Antarctica and the southern oceans, where they focus on the most charismatic and popular bird on Earth - the penguin. Spycameras cleverly disguised as life size penguins infiltrate the colonies to capture their emotional and often amusing lives. The emperor penguin has the most incredible life story of any bird. Just as Polar Bear - Spy on the Ice changed the way we look at an iconic subject, the spycameras give the emperor penguin's amazing story a fresh perspective. 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 comical penguins nesting on cliffs in the Falklands islands, braving incredibly rough oceans to reach the shore. The trials and tribulations of these other penguins crosscut 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 60degree temperatures, Humboldt penguins are tolerating plus 40degrees in the driest desert on Earth! While emperors are negotiating huge snowdrifts, rockhoppers are trying to jump up vertical cliffs. 50 different spycams reveal the secret lives of nature's most devoted parents.
