Ireland's Wild Coast

A 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 - the place he chooses to make his home after 30 years spent shooting some of the world's most celebrated wildlife films. The series will follow Colin from the southwest corner of the island to finish on the tip of Northern Ireland. Along the way, he gives intimate personal insights into the wild animals and wild places he discovers. In Episode Two, the odyssey continues as Colin Stafford-Johnson completes his journey along Ireland's Atlantic rim. Exploring the wildlife and mountains around his home inlet of Clew Bay, Colin then heads north for Donegal - Golden Eagle country, before reaching the island's northern tip and turning east along the coast of Northern Ireland. Along the way, he features the Whooper Swans that fly from the north every Autumn to escape an Arctic winter, the fabulously elusive Pine Marten resident here since the last Ice Age, and the great ocean wanderers that are Basking Sharks - the second biggest fish on the planet which turn up every summer out of the blue.
