BBC's Penguin Post Office

Delightful memory for some.

Coming attraction for others.

Both for a lucky few.

And for anyone interested - around 16mins in the footage of the people writing postcards - they're all off the Expedition, if anyone wants a close up look at what the parkas are like in action!

Exercising patience here. Hopefully the BBC will reward it before too long.

For those in the US- it will finally be shown on PBS this month. It is part of their "Nature" series and is showing Jan 28th on most stations.

They're in for a treat. The programme gives a real insight into Port Lockroy life for both staff and the indigenous residents. My only disappointment was that only skuas were presented as penguin predators and no time was given to others such as leopard seals (we saw one in magnificent and bloody action on our first visit) and orca.

The Blue Jacketed Bipeds are from Fram (which can be seen in the background in some shots) and they were recording when we were there in January 2012.
