Wild Life: Resurrection Island
National Geographic wildlife filmmaker Bertie Gregory takes audiences on an adventure to the South Georgia Island. In 2018, National Geographic wildlife filmmaker Bertie Gregory takes audiences on an adventure to the iconic South Georgia Island. Sailing through the roughest ocean on the planet in a 50ft sailboat, the teams target is the sub-Antarctic island renowned for its 9000ft glaciated mountains that erupt straight up out of the ocean. Together with its breathtaking scenery, this island now claims one of the highest concentration of wildlife on the planet. Bertie gets closer than ever before to capture the challenges faced by the 4 toughest animals that call this place home. The sass, teamwork, endurance, and uncanny city living that are all part of this extreme environment are brought to life. But this is more than just a straight natural history show.
