Every year, thousands of Antarctica's emperor penguins make an astonishing journey to breed their young. They walk, marching day and night in single file 70 miles into the darkest, driest and coldest continent on Earth. Morgan Freeman narrates this amazing, true-life tale touched with humour and alive with thrills. Breathtaking photography captures the transcendent beauty and staggering drama of devoted parent penguins who, in the fierce polar winter, take turns guarding their egg and trekking to the ocean in search of food. Predators hunt them, storms lash them. But the safety of their adorable chicks makes it all worthwhile. So follow the leader ... to adventure!!

All animals need this type of PR campaign! The story of how the Emperor Penguins hatch and feed their young is truly amazing, and the ability of the French team to get so close and film so much in such awful conditions is pretty incredible, too. But all that footage and the intrinsic value of the story wouldn't succeed without really great editing to make it all coherent. This has it all. ( )
