Matthew Macfadyen narrates '24 Hours on Earth' on BBC America
If you love Matthew Macfadyen’s voice (who doesn’t?) and/or nature, this will be for you! BBC America announced last month that they will air a new night of Earth-centric programming, including a new documentary called 24 Hours on Earth.
In this epic spectacular, the BBC Natural History Unit use a brand new approach to delve deep into the natural world and explore its most critical dimension – time.
24 Hours on Earth travels moment by moment through a virtual day and celebrates the most extraordinary and spectacular examples of how animals and plants are adapted to exploit the 24-hour cycle. The two-part series features returnable characters that show the huge highs and desperate lows they face across a single day in the wild. It celebrates the most mind-blowing adaptations that life uses to exploit tiny windows of time.
24 Hours on Earth is a BBC/BBC AMERICA co-production and is executive produced by James Honeyborne. It will premiere as part of BBC AMERICA’s new BBC Earth programming block on Tuesdays.
And it is thanks to MNN that we learnt this new programme was narrated by Matthew!
24 Hours on Earth premieres Tuesday, March 11, 9:00pm ET. This first part focusing on dailight hours, the second part airing on March 18th will be set at night.
