  • #3205 — Penguin Post Office
    In the heart of the Antarctic Peninsula there's a post office surrounded by jaw-dropping scenery and 3,000 gentoo penguins. Every summer, as staff put stamps on postcards, the penguins return from their fishing grounds to their breeding grounds, trek nearly two miles across sea ice and snow, rush to find a partner, build a nest, lay eggs and protect them from predators, and finally get down to the task of raising their young. We see their four-month drama unfold as cruise ships come and go, bringing tourists to buy postcards and photograph penguins -- the backdrop to the penguins' lives.

  • #3310 — Moose: Life of a Twig Eater
    High up in Canada's Rockies, by a crystal-clear lake rimmed with old-growth forest, a moose is born. At the best of times, the odds are stacked against this leggy 35-pounder surviving its first year; normally less than 50% do. But now populations across many parts of North America are in steep decline and scientists believe one of the reasons is that fewer moose calves are surviving their first year, so it has never been more important to understand what happens in the first year of a moose's life. This stunningly intimate nature documentary, filmed over 13 months in the spectacular wilds of Jasper National Park, takes viewers deep inside the world of moose to experience a mother's love and a calf's first year of life up close and personal.

  • #3312 — Snow Chick
    From the filmmakers who brought viewers the spectacular 3-part miniseries, "Penguins: Spy in the Huddle," comes this intimate and incredible journey of one vulnerable and charismatic Emperor penguin chick, from the moment he emerges from the egg to the moment he leaves for the sea as a boisterous adolescent. His story begins with his father, who's left holding the baby through the long Antarctic winter while his mother is 50 miles away catching fish to feed him. Mom and Dad swap responsibilities until the chick is big enough to take his first steps. His new-found independence in this extraordinarily difficult and dangerous place is filled with humor and danger that will test his parents until the day he leaves them and makes the long trek to the sea without them to begin a life on his own.
