VIDEO - USA - Penguins: Spy In The Huddle Narrated By David Tennant Premieres On PBS Next Week



PBS channels will begin airing the acclaimed documentary series Penguins: Spy In The Huddle from Wednesday 24th September. It is airing as part of the long-running PBS-TV series “Nature” which is entering its 33rd season on public television.

The three-part series, created by award-winning nature dicumentary makers John Downer Productions is airing with the original voiceover from David Tennant.

The life of a penguin is not an easy one, but recording the challenges faced by nature's most devoted parents and their offspring in remote parts of the world was nearly as hard, and only possible due to the placement of spycams in their midst. For nearly a year, filmmakers deployed 50 animatronic cameras disguised as realistic life-size penguins, eggs and rocks to infiltrate the colonies of three very different species: emperor penguins in Antarctica, rockhopper penguins on the Falkland Islands, and Humboldt penguins in Peru's Atacama Desert. The resulting footage shows what it is really like to be a penguin from a whole new perspective.

Take a front row seat as they journey to their breeding grounds, raise chicks, dodge predators and return to the sea when Penguins: Spy in the Huddle, A Nature Special Presentation airs on three consecutive Wednesdays, September 24, October 1 and 8, 2014 at 8 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings). After broadcast, the episodes will be available for online streaming at pbs.org/nature.
