Watch Preview Videos From Penguins - Spy In The Huddle Narrated By David Tennant

John Downer Productions have uploaded two new video clips from their new three part documentary series Penguins- Spy In The Huddle. The series, which begins on Monday 11th February at 9pm on BBC One, is narrated by David Tennant.

John Downer Productions say:

With their feisty nature, penguins are bringing up their young against the most extraordinary odds. Penguins – Spy in the Huddle spends nearly a year in their close company, deploying 50 spycams to capture as never before the true character of three very different, yet equally charismatic, birds. ­This is what it’s really like to be a penguin.
From the freezing ice to the scorching desert, the team that brought you the award-winning Polar Bear – Spy on the Ice now reveals the intimate behaviour of nature’s most devoted parents – from emperor penguins in Antarctica, rockhopper penguins on the Falkland Islands and Humboldt penguins in the Atacama Desert of Peru.
Key to the success of the spycam missions are the animatronic cameras cleverly disguised as lifesize penguins which can silently infiltrate the colonies to record the penguins’ often emotional, and sometimes amusing, behaviour. They’re on hand to chart the tough challenges these penguins face from the moment they emerge from the sea to raising their chicks and finally returning to the water.
Penguins – Spy in the Huddle takes you closer to penguins than ever before.

In the first of the clips, an Emperor penguin lays her egg:

In a second clip, Rockhopper Penguins hop to the top of the cliffs of the Falkland Islands

A DVD of the series will be released on the 8th April 2013. Click here to pre-order.
