Snow Babies

Radio Times

Emma Sturgess

Watching film of baby animals being super-sweet is one of the most diverting of office activities, as clips fly around the internet. Now we workers can indulge guilt-free at home with Snow Babies, a tale of plucky young animals born into tough, cold conditions.

David Jason narrates the cute wild cast’s preparations for their first winter as they follow their survival instincts and learn new skills. A baby polar bear needs to keep up with his mum, an infant emperor penguin must learn to strike out on his own, and a reindeer calf has to run with the herd to avoid the unwelcome attentions of wolves and eagles.
