We explore how creativity may peak after nightfall, feeding our artistic spirits and our imaginations
• We travel to Berlin, New York and London to see how three individuals' practices are interwoven into their cities' unique nighttime cultures
• We look at how the invention of the electric light has shaped culture and allowed us the freedom to lead lives outside of daylight hours
• We visit Penny Harms, a passionate individual who has dedicated her life to nurturing exotic flora
• We look at nocturnal organisms that have evolved to co-exist – pollinators and flora that rely on each other to survive
• Delving into the nocturnal worlds of biological illumination – bioluminescence and biofluorescence.
• We investigate the luminous fauna that light up our oceans and their little understood language of light
• Expert David Gruber explains the importance of documenting these luminous fauna to encourage conservation efforts
• We discuss how bioluminescence is being used in the lab and the possible ethical questions needing to be asked
• We question and explore why meteorites fascinate mankind
• We step out onto the East Antarctic Icesheet to scour for meteorites, so we may learn the secrets of the universe
• Sound design can manipulate and influence our intrinsic reactions and we learn how sound designers interweave narratives into soundtracks
