The World About Us

on BBC Two England

Strange Creatures of the Night Narrator Hugh Falkus
Vampire bats, hyenas and owls have one feature in common: they hunt under cover of darkness.
Until recently it was impossible to film these creatures of the night in action. By using new techniques in high speed and night photography, a whole range of intriguing animal behaviour that has seldom been seen before is revealed by the special cameras. Now we can watch a pack of hyenas stalking their prey by night; a bat ' fishing ' using echo location in the dark; the strange blind creatures that live deep beneath the earth's surface; and the dreaded vampire bat seeking its victims in the dead of night.
