Three years ago, the Bachelor King left home. He partied at sea – he adventured, he matured and now he is returning to the place where he was born and raised: Penguin City. This is one of the most densely-packed, sought-after pieces of real estate in the entire southern hemisphere and somehow he must establish his own place in it and find a mate.

Narrated by David Attenborough and shot over 6 months, using specially designed 3D cameras stereoscopic rigs, this story immerses the audience in a dramatic rite of passage tale in one of the last great frozen wildernesses in the world.
