Ireland's Wild Coast is a unique and 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 odyssey along Ireland's rugged Atlantic coast.
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. Never conquered by the Romans, Ireland was for millennia the very edge of the known world for Europeans and the last stop for countless animals before they disappeared into the mists of the western ocean on their ceaseless journeys of life.
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.
