“David Attenborough’s Light on Earth” is a Terra Mater Factual Studios production in co-production with CuriosityStream in association with BBC, UKTV and ABC Australia, produced by Ammonite.
Produced and directed by Joe Loncraine and Martin Dohrn, “David Attenborough’s Light on Earth” portrays the phenomenon of bioluminescence, spectacular and magical light made by living creatures. With Sir David Attenborough as our guide through a world that glows, and specially developed high-tech cameras to catch it all, “David Attenborough’s Light on Earth” is a breath-taking visual journey, that has by now already garnered eight awards from festivals around the world, amongst them the NHK Science Award and the Technical Innovation Award at the prestigious biannually held Wildscreen-Festival.
