Animals After Dark

Series Produced for Pioneer Productions

Broadcast January 2019

Revealing the hidden night-time life of Britain’s animals. Over three consecutive nights the series takes a look at what nocturnal creatures really get up to in the wild, back gardens, zoos and rescue centres of Britain. Revolutionary lowlight cameras capture wildlife wide awake as we sleep. Some thrive in the shadows while others have difficulty, often needing a helping hand. From bats to urban foxes, hedgehogs and wolves, to sloths and sealions, both native and non-native species reveal their secrets and struggles the length and breadth of the country.

A rescued brown long eared bat gets ready to fly again in Devon.

Hedgehogs were recently voted Britain’s favourite mammal. Go to The British Hedgehog Preservation Society to find out how to help them.
