"Creatures of Light" is really quite a fascinating documentary that looks at yet another one of nature's most remarkable mysteries found in the "hidden world".

As researchers have recently discovered - Bio-luminescence and Bio-florescence exists in about 90% of all lifeforms that thrive on this diverse planet.

Even though this NOVA presentation is somewhat brief (at only 53 minutes), it is a truly riveting biological investigation that is sure to hold your rapt attention from start to finish.

Not only is this 50-minute NOVA documentary educational for all to benefit - But, it is also quite a fascinating presentation, as well.

This "natural phenomenon" investigation takes the awestruck viewer down into the very depths of the ocean where marine biologists diligently go in search of "living" light.

And, in this hidden world of mysterious darkness both bio-luminescence and bio-florescence are discovered (much to everyone's surprise and delight) in so many unusual and unexpected lifeforms.

Magical Mystery Tour!There's just nothin' better than the Natgeo and Nova series, unless it's the Nature series. I love 'em all and couldn't get along without them.
