Monthly Archives: July 2012


THE CITY DARK premiered on PBS July 5, and the response has been terrific! Until August 5, you can stream the 60-minute, PBS version of the film online, or check your local listings.

We’re heartened by the recent media coverage around light pollution in conjunction with our PBS run. Here’s a sampling:

- “We barely see the stars in Chicago, and that’s dangerous” in the Chicago Sun-Times

- “Where Have All the Stars Gone?” on PBS News Hour

- “Lost In ‘The City Dark’: Documenting Missing Stars” on NPR’s Weekend Edition

- “PBS’s The City Dark Will Change the Way You Look at the Night Sky” on Vulture

- “PBS film laments vanishing night sky” on CBS News

And here is a recent POV | PBS  filmmaker interview with Ian Cheney:
