At the end of December we presented a series of shows at oontz.ru/radio, each starting at midnight – just to make those longest nights a little bit brighter. We’ve been listening to about 30 field recordings of all sorts made at night, and apart from that visited a secret skating rink, delved into the world of overnight theatre stage works, phoned our friends asking them to describe colours and shapes outside their night windows, and much more.

Here are all the three episodes of Pervy Chas Nochi (From Midnight Onward) – first broadcast at oontz.ru/radio
