This delightful promo for BBC’s iPlayer is a perfectly executed bit of April Foolishness. Monty Python’s Terry Jones delivers a thoroughly BBC performance as the astonished nature documentarian witnessing the impossible scene.

“Penguins” was directed by Vince Squibb from Gorgeous and the animation, which was all done at Passion Pictures, was directed by Darren Walsh. The Mill also helped with post-production.
