New Series on the Irish Landscape Begins this Sunday
29 Apr 2013 : By Gearóid Gilmore
‘Secrets of the Irish Landscape’ is a three part series presented by popular television presenter Derek Mooney, which tells the history on how the Irish landscape came to be, using the very latest scientific research.

It features some of Ireland’s leading minds to present in an engaging way the story of Ireland’s natural history as we now understand it.

The series will begin at the end of the last Ice Age and cover the key turning points of our natural history right up until the present day.

The series will also focus on the life of botanist Robert Lloyd Praeger, who began a pilgrimage around Ireland in 1895 to study the distribution of Irish flora and to gain an intimate knowledge of Ireland’s unique landscape.

For this series, Derek Mooney, with the help of Praeger’s 1937 book ‘The Way That I Went’, will go on an epic journey around Ireland and Europe, looking back 20,000 years to unravel the true enigma surrounding Ireland’s unique eco system.

A major new book published by RTÉ and Cork University Press will be released to coincide with the new television series. ‘Secrets of the Irish Landscape’ is part funded by the BAI and is an RTÉ Cork Production for RTÉ Television. The first in the series will air this Sunday on RTÉ One at 18:30.
