Episode Info

Photographer Lennart Nilsson has built a career out of taking pictures of things most folks never see; using special microscopic lens technology, Nilsson is able to magnify the smallest creatures until they take on the appearance of mammoth monsters, and this documentary gives him a chance to bring his photographs to life. NOVA: The Unknown World is centered around film footage shot by Nilsson of insects, allowing viewers to see the bugs in a whole new perspective as ladybugs chase aphids, larvae take on a piece of clothing, and silverfish make their way through a home.
