Brilliant
11 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Great photography; really enjoyed the use of penguin-cam, egg-cam, rock-cam etc.

Narration was wonderful - the best of Mr. Tennant and his natural voice.

Altogether wonderful documentary following the life cycle of three distinct penguin types, including one that breeds in a desert!

Not to be missed.

Only wish the BBC had made more episodes. Don't know what they would have covered, only know they would have been just as good. My kids (6 and 8) really, really enjoyed this show, too.
