This program from the acclaimed PBS Nature series, "Forces of the Wild," focuses on how the movements of the sun and moon create powerful rhythms which influence all living things on Earth: tides rise and fall, seasons change, creatures breed or migrate, and humans plant crops and celebrate holidays. Narrated by James Earl Jones.
