The Magical Four – Our Seasons

90’ / HD 

Our seasons shape the cycle of life in dramatic ways. Spring, summer, autumn or winter – every season is unique, each presenting nature with new challenges. The constant change in living conditions demands extraordinary feats from animals and plants throughout the year. And the survival strategies of the squirrel, fox and many others could hardly be more fascinating. 

The film takes us on a breathtaking journey of discovery through indigenous nature: after the privations of winter, life explodes in spring, the heat of summer is followed by the harvest season of autumn. Extraordinary animal stories – some humorous, some dramatic, but always with an eye to the season’s special features – bring the magic of our seasons to life.

This 90-minute feature combines the best moments from Days of Summer, Autumn - World of Colours, Springtime Stories and Christmas Winter Wonderland to a captivating storybook about the transformative power of the seasons.
