Show Review Earth at Night In Color


Using cutting-edge cameras and a revolutionary editing process, “Earth At Night In Color” presents nature’s previously unseen marvels with striking new clarity. Captured across six continents, from the Arctic Circle to the African grasslands, this pioneering work follows the moonlit lives of animals at night, revealing new insights and never-before-seen behaviors into some of our favorite species’ nocturnal habits. The show will also introduce relatively unknown creatures who are sure to become new icons of the animal kingdom. 

Our pandemic movie nights have now included documentaries something I should have done much sooner.  Apple TV+ recently launched an amazing series called Earth in Color at at Night.  Only 6 episodes long, I wasn’t sure what to expect but the beautiful images and Tom Hiddlesont’s soothing voice make this series one of the best on Apple TV.

Hands down our favorite episode was the “Lion Grasslands” which provided some unexpected drama.  “The Earth at Night in Color” follows a pride of lions, as they hunt and lounge in the Kenya’s Masai Mara grasslands.  Things turn tense with a Lioness temporarily abandons her cubs to hunt for the rest of the group.  When she returns only one cub remains and she starts a desperate hunt for find the other two.  When I say that we were all relieved when this episode ended I’m being utterly serious.  My hands were sweating and my kids were enthralled at the a mothers search for her babies.

In “Bear Woodlands”, a black bear attempts to find food and fight off wolves in the cold boreal forests of Europe.  Another tense episode, the show captures vividly how a bear hunts in order to put pounds on before hibernation.  It also shows how they mate, the start of this episode follows her potential mate for four days before she pays him any attention.  

Each episode ends with a brief explanation of how the show was made and these bits were just as fascinating as the animals themselves.  For “Bear Woodlands”, the videographer hikes into the forest for miles to come across a space that is absolutely dark with no light pollution penetrating the area.  In another episode, a ranger helps the Director track the lions who in turn are tracking down their cubs. Narrated by Tom Hiddleston (LOKI) his quiet voice is a perfect paring to many of these episodes that take place in places that are typically silent.

Season 2 of “The Earth at Night in Color” premieres in 2021!
