Penguins: Spy In The Huddle
Discover what it really means to be a penguin as the latest spy cameras give us a whole new perspective on the behaviour and extreme survival tactics of these incredible and hugely charismatic birds. Following the success of Polar Bear - Spy on the Ice, the spy cams move to the next level with Penguincam, a range of super-realistic animatronic cameras disguised as penguins, chicks and eggs. Travelling to the freezing Antarctic to focus on the emperor penguins, and interspersing their stories with the very different experiences of the desert-based Humbolt in South America and the Falklands Islands-based rock-hopper, Penguin - Spy in the Huddle gives the inside track on all the drama and challenges they face throughout the year, as well as capturing plenty of comedy moments! The amazing technical wizardry of the penguincams allows them to blend into the penguin colonies, allowing a closer view of the creatures than ever before as they immerse themselves in the penguin world, both on land and at sea, where the camera's disguise leads to some surprising encounters - one penguin even falls in love with rockhoppercam!
