Wild Ireland - The Edge of the World / Éire Fhiáin


2x1 hour series for BBC, TG4, PBS, ORF, NDR, France TV, Creative Europe - MEDIA

A unique personal journey along one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world featuring the wildlife and wild places that make it so special. Emmy award-winning wildlife cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson takes viewers on an authored odyssey along Ireland’s rugged Atlantic coast. (Eoin Warner presents in the Irish language version ÉIRE FHIÁIN)


As never captured before, this series features Ireland’s west coast and wildlife wonders – from the Skellig Rocks - stormbound ocean pinnacles settled by early Christian monks 1500 years ago to breaching Humpback whales newly arrived off the island’s southern shores, to Golden Eagles fighting the gales of the northern highlands, to the majestic Salmon returning from the Arctic to face upriver into some of the purest freshwaters in Europe; to the clash of Ireland’s last surviving Red Deer stags echoing through the island’s highest mountains.

Can you please pass this on to the appropriate person.

I just wanted to mail to say that whoever done the filming for The Secret Life of the Shannon, should win a award for it. It is mind blowing beautifully made. You just captured all the little details of everything.
Thanks for making something so amazing for RTE. Keep up the amazing work.
