Ron Pisaneschi, General ManagerHi, I'm Ron Pisaneschi. My Pick for next time is Nature's "Penguin Post Office." In the heart of the Antarctic Peninsula there's a post office surrounded by jaw-dropping scenery and 3,000 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. That's "Penguin Post Office" on Nature, Wednesday, January 28th at 7:00 p.m. MT/PT. And that's my Pick for next time.
