DARK SKIES: A JOURNEY INTO THE WILD NIGHT
Darkness has shaped the lives of humans for millennia. In Dark Skies, Tiffany Francis travels around Britain and Europe to learn more about nocturnal landscapes and our connection with the night sky.
Over the course of a year, Tiffany travels through different nightscapes across the UK and beyond. She experiences 24-hour daylight while swimming in the Gulf of Finland and visits Arctic Norway to witness the Northern Lights and speak to people who live in darkness for three months each year. She hikes through the haunted yew forests of Kingley Vale, embarks on a nocturnal sail down the River Dart, feeds foxes on a south London estate, and listens to nightjars churring on a Sussex heathland.
