New series on urban wildlife WILD CITIES starting Sun May 8th on RTÉ One at 6:30pm
While an urban fox hunts for food on a dark Dublin street; Badgers sneak into a Belfast garden for jam sandwiches; Herring gulls raise their chicks on a rooftop of Dublin’s O’Connell Street; salmon leap the weir in Galway; Grey Herons beg for scraps at the English Market in Cork; and seals bask on the shores of Belfast Lough.
Starting Sunday 8th May on RTÉ One at 6:30pm, "Wild Cities" is a fascinating new four-part series set on the streets of Cork, Dublin, Galway and Belfast revealing each city's wildest yet most secretive residents - the wild animals that live there.
The series also brings four fresh new faces to our screens as Rob Gondola, Tara Shine, John Lusby and Simon Watt are each the guide to the city they have a special connection to and affinity with.
Offering the very best in Natural history filmmaking, the series was shot using the most up-to-date camera technologies, nest cameras, infra red 'night vision' and super slow motion, and all the time in the most unusual and surprising of settings.
