Lights Out! 1x44
Our planet is lit up 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’re addicted to light of all kinds, and like anything else that’s addictive, is too much a bad thing? Lights Out! joins leading scientists in the lab and in the field to discover how much harm light at night may be causing people and to learn about the ground-breaking steps being taken to protect us. The filmmakers follow nightshift workers, truck drivers on a continental run, and a scientist who fights cancer by day and plays trumpet by night, discovering that danger hot spots are everywhere—from the illumination in the hospital ICU to the tiny screens of our mobile devices. What can we do about this environmental hazard that is so necessary in our everyday life?
