2 PEN­GUINS

TV & Satellite Week - - This Week On TV -

Fac­ing bliz­zards and tem­per­a­tures of -60C, a colony of 11,000 em­peror pen­guins in Antarc­tica’s Atka Bay at­tempt to rear their young. As the chicks are wait­ing to hatch, the fe­males re­turn to the sea in search of food and the males be­come one huge fam­ily unit to keep their chicks alive.

‘They have to sur­vive the win­ter in the cold­est, cru­ellest place on Earth,’ ex­plains At­ten­bor­ough.

‘The pen­guins’ bond needs to be one of the strong­est in na­ture be­cause ev­ery fam­ily de­pends upon it’.
