The BBC announced that camera crews filming near the Antarctic for its natural history series Miracles of Evolution
had captured footage of Adélie penguins taking to the air. It offered a video clip
of these flying penguins, which became one of the most viewed videos on the internet.
Presenter Terry Jones explained that, instead of huddling together to endure the Antarctic winter, these penguins took to the air and flew thousands of miles to the rainforests of South America where they "spend the winter basking in the tropical sun." A follow-up video
explained how the BBC created the special effects of the flying penguins.
