Nat Geo Wild To Air Penguin Palooza Weekend


Nat Geo WILD is getting ready for a two-day marathon (all-day, all-weekend) Penguin Palooza, from noon to 11pm ET/PT on Saturday November 12 and Sunday, November 13.

Highlights include the broadcast premiere of Arctic Tale, Saturday, November 12, at 8 pm ET/PT. Narrated by Queen Latifah, Arctic Tale is the coming of age story of a walrus pup and polar bear cub as they fight for survival in the Arctic wilderness. Armed with only their natural instinct and mothers’ guidance, these animals face countless challenges in a rapidly melting icebound world.

The following night, Nat Geo WILD premieres the Academy Award-winning film March of the Penguins at 8pm ET/PT. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this National Geographic film tells the real-life story of the treacherous journey thousands of emperor penguins make each year as they march single-file to their breeding grounds in Antarctica.
