The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau (1966-1976): The Flight of the Penguins  (1974)

The second of four reports from the Calypso on her visit to the Antarctic.  Sixty million years ago the ancestors of penguins flew; now their wings have evolved into flippers, and they can only 'fly' under the water.  Cousteau's divers follow the penguins' flight through the sea to the shores of Antarctica to breed.
