SUNDAYS AT 7PM

From the Oscar-winning producers of March of the Penguins, Dawn explores the environments of Zambia, Brazil, Mexico, Norway and Columbia by the light of daybreak.

As the Earth spins around its axis, it also revolves around the sun - a double rotation responsible for the changing of the seasons and the alternation of night and day. These transitional phases have influenced life on our planet since the dawn of time, determining plant structures and animal behaviour.

Dawn plunges into the esoteric transition from night to day in five of our planet’s most beautiful locations, and examines animals as they wake up in different parts of the world - including the tropical rainforest, the savannah, the Arctic tundra, the pluvial forest, and the desert.
