New Attenborough doc to film near Antarctic Peninsula

Sir David Attenborough is set to narrate a new wildlife documentary for Sky 3D called Penguin Island 3D that will be filmed on location on the uninhabited island of South Georgia near the Antarctic Peninsula.

The film will include underwater footage, all of which will be in 3D. The naturalist said: “South Georgia is one of the most extraordinary and least appreciated places for wildlife in the world. King penguins are particularly interesting because they are so big that the chicks can’t grow to adult dimensions and strength to go to sea within a year. The landscape and wildlife of South Georgia is very dramatic and I think it will look absolutely mind-blowing in 3D.”

James Taylor, Head of Content Distribution at Atlantic Productions, said: “We’re developing special underwater housing for the 3D camera, which is very exciting.”

The finished film will be shown on Sky 3D towards the end of 2011 and will also get a cinema release.
