A journey into the depths of Antarctica to visit one of the most amazing species on the planet - Emperor Penguins.
Travelling on one of the last tourist voyages of the icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov, the trip promised to be special as we headed for the extremely remote island of Snow Hill deep in the Weddell Sea, not far from where Shackleton's ship The Endurance sank in 1915. The expedition then became a once-in-a-lifetime event, as the weather turned and we found ourselves trapped in the ice for an extra week, an event that excited the world's press.
