S1 E7. What is the biggest species of owl ever known to mankind? Why do owls turn their heads all the way around? Are bats actually blind? Are any fish nocturnal? Ft. Roberto and James.

Friday, 4 January

In this week's show we answer four questions from Etienne, Douglas, Camille and Isabel, with help from special guest experts Roberto and James, from the Natural History Museum.


Happy New Year! Welcome to this week’s episode of Everything Under the Sun, a weekly podcast answering all the most pressing questions children around the world have about life on earth. This week we're headed into the Natural History Museum in London. We’re going to explore their exhibition called Life in The Dark.The show is all about animals that like to go out and about in the dark or in dark places on earth. Some are nocturnal - so come out at night – like owls, foxes, frogs and badgers – others live in caves – like bats – and others in deep dark parts of the ocean.Turn your torches on and come with me as we venture into Life In The Dark!


This week we have four questions from Etienne, Douglas, Camille and Isabel - they would like to know: What is the biggest species of owl ever known to mankind? Why do owls turn their heads all the way around? Are bats actually blind? And are any fish nocturnal.


Along the way we will bump into scientists who work at the museum who will answer the questions you’ve sent into the show using their expert knowledge! We have Roberto, the curator of mammals at the museum and James, the curator of fish who first appeared in the podcast's first episode, talking about hammerhead sharks!


Tune in to find out who won tickets to go ice skating at the Natural History Museum, hear owl impressions from Arlo, Martha and Heidi and how to win tickets to see Life in the Dark at the museum. It is a brilliant show for all the family, children go free and you can win TWO adult tickets so all the family can go along together - it's well worth the trip. Sound effects from the show are used in this very podcast, enjoy!
