Light on Earth -

Life that Glows

_plant film club

We will enter into the unknown universe of the dark where the only illumination is living light. Here weird and wonderful creatures hunt, mate and even hide using light! Astonishingly, living light may be the norm, not the exception.  

Luminous beings, creatures with their own internal light, enchant and astonish us. Anyone who has seen a firefly or a glow-worm cannot help but fall under their spell. The sea at night sparkles as millions of luminous plankton reveal the shapes of dolphins in a truly magical light show. But why do animals produce living light? For centuries we could only marvel at the beauty and the mystery, but now for the first time we can begin to reveal the amazing truth about living lights. The cameras used are so sensitive they are revealing startling discoveries that until now we could not see. Scientists have entered the unknown world of the boundless deep open ocean with the help of a new generation of submersibles and robots.

This film shows creatures and behaviours never seen before. Sir David Attenborough is our guide as we venture into a new hitherto unseen world; A quest to reveal the secrets of living lights.
