Series: Ireland's Wild Coast
A journey along one of the most spectacular coastlines in the world featuring the wildlife and wild places that make it so special. 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. Hanging like an emerald jewel off the western edge of Europe, Ireland has always been a place apart -- the last scrap of rock before the void of the Atlantic Ocean. The 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.
