2. Night on Earth

What happens when the world is asleep? The animals come out to play. Quoting from the video, it kickstarts by claiming that “we are all indeed strangers to the night”. It could not hit closer to home.

This nature documentary, Night On Earth offers you a different vantage point at night. Reality is what you believe it to be. And the reality for most of these nocturnal animals is that the night is always young. From following lions on their prowl for their prey, to bats’ way of life, this nature documentary guarantees a heart-pounding, thrilling experience.

3. Understanding the Science of Change

Last but not least, this nature documentary is a voice for climate change. As with everything that has been around for an extended time, the earth’s health tends to be under-appreciated. This documentary serves as a salient reminder, as to why everyone should not let their guard down. It includes glimpses of not only life on land but the ocean as well.

You might have watched Finding Nemo when you were a kid. It introduced us briefly to the Great Barrier Reef as a home to many marine creatures. But this documentary serves to dive deeper into the adverse impacts of climate change on these habitats, as well as delving into the behind the scenes of global warming.
