"Нощни птици" е вечерното токшоу на БНТ. В него водещата и автор Искра Ангелова кани най-интересните личности от шоу бизнеса, известните и талантливи хора от сцените на България. Те пеят, свирят, пишат, играят, режисират, танцуват, рисуват, но и показват истинското си лице в предаването, станало запазена марка на БНТ. Искра Ангелова ги изненадва с техните приятели, учители, любими и съперници, те очакват с нетърпение кой ще зададе тайния въпрос и така предаването се превръща в нещо много повече от портретно интервю - то става преживяване на живо, хепънинг с много музика, спомени и истории. Интересното е, че интервюто - представено като непринуден разговор - разкрива личния свят на гостите и ги въвлича съвсем неусетно и леко в темите от деня. Около рояла си говорят така, сякаш не са в телевизионно студио.
В предаването са били и много журналисти, политици и общественици. Специално заради него в България пристигна и създателят на Уикипедия Джими Уейлс.
Искра Ангелова е дипломирана актриса, филолог и журналист, както и Фулбрайтов специализант. Тя е завършила магистратурата си по телевизионна журналистика в университета Емерсън в Бостън, САЩ и е работила като продуцент в сутрешното предаване на националната американска телевизия CBS в Ню Йорк.
Музикантите на "Нощни птици" са изключителни - Мишо Шишков, Владимир Михайлов, Румен Бояджиев- син, Борислав Бояджиев, Петко Славов, Гриша Георгиев и Вяра Панталеева правят музикален портрет на всеки гост и са ненадминати в създаването на вечерната атмосфера в предаването. Отговорен оператор е Веселин Апостолов, режисьор - Милена Гетова, изпълнителен продуцент - Виделина Луканова, директор на продукцията - Валентин Велков.
"Нощни птици" забавлява, но умно. Това е своеобразен клуб на можещите и знаещите, защото екипът на предаването вярва, че добрите примери ще ни спасят.

A stooge is present in the audience (‘Hidden Trump’), the show organizes a literary (‘Bookstore’) and wine (‘Spirit of the Bottle’) club where it presents the favorite books and drinks of the guest. Which theaters, night clubs, concert halls and cinemas the guest visits you can understand from ‘Art in the Evening’. ‘Nursery’ takes the guest back to his childhood, mischief and memories, while ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ reveals the friendships, loves and important people in his life.
