Stamps Feature Frozen Planet Wildlife and Cameramen

SG FP stamps

South Georgia and the British Antarctic Territories regularly issue their own stamps which are collected all over the world.

In September 2011, to commemorate the new BBC series Frozen Planet, South Georgia will issue stamps with photos of wildlife and of the four wildlife cameramen Ian McCarthy, John Aitchison, Ted Giffords and Martyn Colbeck filming for the series.

Time to get used to having our backs licked! Will it tickle?

As well as being “Mr Summer” filming a wandering albatross on the South Georgia stamps, the British Antarctic Territory First Day Cover will feature John filming Adelie penguins on the Antarctic Peninsula.
