[edit] Information

In this 60-minute documentary, National Geographic accompanies a family of naturalists on a quiet journey through islands around the northern tip of Antarctica. The family members, seasoned Antarctic explorers, study bustling penguin colonies to gauge the general environmental health of the peninsula. Interestingly, the film reveals that scientists are the primary threat to Antarctica's ecology--in some areas, rusting shipwrecks and abandoned oil drums from scientific expeditions litter the landscape. Unlike most National Geographic features, this film favors character studies over geology--we learn quite a bit about the family's three sons, but little about the formation of the "last continent." The camera work is somewhat uninspired (perhaps due to the restrictions of filming from the boat), but there are some excellent close-ups of humpback whales surfacing around the small vessel. Penguin lovers will also enjoy the ample footage of their favorite amiable black-and-white birds.
