Using the Penguincams (super-realistic animatronic cameras disguised as penguins, chicks and eggs) gives the inside track on all the drama and challenges these 'tuxedoed' birds face throughout the year, with no shortage of laughs along the way. From the freezing Antarctic, the domain of the regal emperor penguin to the blushing Humboldt of South America's sizzling deserts, to the tiny Rockhopper of the Falkland Islands, the Penguincam allows a closer view of these creatures than ever before.

Like most wildlife shows, this one is meant to entertain as well as inform. In some other shows, that's just irritating ("Here's Suki and her cubs Binki and Bonki"). However, "Penguins . . ." is more subtle that that, with the entertainment factor coming partly from penguin interaction with camerabots disguised as penguins, rocks, etc, and partly from the (to us) naturally goofy actions of the birds themselves. David Tennant offers charming narration and, like all BBC wildlife programming, it's brilliantly filmed.
