My Penguin Year: Living with the Emperors – A Journey of Discovery

£9.99

In stock

When the BBC asked BAFTA-winning cameraman Lindsay McCrae to go to Antarctica to film emperor penguins he was thrilled. After discussing it with his wife Becky they agreed that, although it would mean him being away for 11 months, he should do it. But then she became pregnant and it seemed like the worst idea in the world – not just to miss the birth of his first child, but the first 7 months of his life. Weeks of anguished discussions followed before they decided he should go because it was his dream project and the chance might never come again.

My Penguin Year recounts Lindsay’s adventure to the end of the Earth, filming the most resilient creatures in nature, while coping with being over 15,000km away from Becky and all the comforts of home – something which almost proved too much. In weaving their story with his epic journey, Lindsay has created a masterpiece of natural observation – and a deeply moving tale of human endeavour in the harshest environment on the planet.
