Last season THIRTEEN's Nature and BBC All-natural World commissioned a production that will capture the reproduction period of Port Lockroy’s gentoo penguins. Their everyday trials and tribulations unfold as luxury cruise ships come and get, taking tourists to buy postcards, look at the museum not to mention photograph the penguins.
Working simultaneously are two additional BBC productions: BBC Radio 4 ‘Penguin Post Office’, taped because of the movie staff staff, and CBBC’s ‘My lifestyle’ featuring director and cameraman Andrew Graham-Brown’s children.
Port Lockroy postoffice and museum sits on little Goudier Island in Antarctica. Created in February 1944 the study section remained completely occupied until 1962. In 1996 Port Lockroy was restored to its original problem and is today available to site visitors during the Antarctic summertime. Annually the Trust recruits a group of four gifted and enthusiastic staff to get results at Port Lockroy the period, marketing the history of British boffins' early work. The gentoo penguins came on Goudier Island in 1985.
