A penguin colony on the edge

The first of a new series, Explore: Patagonia to the Pampas takes a journey through the spectacular landscapes of Argentina, from the vast ice fields of Patagonia to the wide open plains of the Pampas.

In her search for some of Argentina's more eccentric inhabitants, Tanya Datta meets penguin researcher, Mike Bingham.

Explore, a new travel-based journalism series, provides an insight into exotic parts of the world, revealing stories about the environment, globalisation, and politics. Patagonia to the Pampas is on BBC Two at 2100 GMT, on Sunday, 25 January.
