NEW SERIES 'A WILD IRISH YEAR' BEGINS MAY 13 ON RTÉ ONE 

From wildlife to weather, from farming cycles to nature’s ancient rhythms, our new four part series A WILD IRISH YEAR features the changes sweeping across our green island throughout one year. The presenting team of Tara Shine, Rob Gandola and Eoin Warner showcase some of our most spectacular natural events and meet a diverse range of people whose livelihood depends on the natural rhythm of the seasons.

Speaking about the project, Dr Tara Shine said: 

“Ireland’s nature is wild, unpredictable and constantly surprising. You just never know what is around the next corner and finding hidden wildlife is always a thrill.”

The series, which is part of a new season of Irish natural history programmes being shown by RTÉ, begins Sunday May 13th on RTÉ One at 6:30pm.

THE FARTHEST WINS BEST FEATURE DOC AT THE IRISH FILM & TV AWARDS 2018

Coming off the back of a very successful festival run, a US & UK / Ireland theatrical release and having received praise from critics and audiences alike, THE FARTHEST took home the George Morrison Award for Best Feature Docmentary at the Irish Film & Television Awards on Feb 15th 2018. Accepting the award on behalf of the whole crew, director Emer Reynolds said "a bit like the spacecraft, this film has travelled further than we could ever have dreamed."

THE FARTHEST's sound team - designer Steve Flanagan and recordist Kieran Horgan - also won the Best Sound Award for their incredible work on the film.

Produced by John Murray and Clare Stronge, THE FARTHEST tells the amazing true story of the iconic Voyager space mission. It is one of humankind's greatest achievements. More than 12 billion miles away a tiny spaceship is leaving our Solar System and entering the void of deep space - the first human-made object ever to do so. Slowly dying within its heart is a nuclear generator that will beat for perhaps another decade before the lights on Voyager finally go out. But this little craft will travel on for millions of years, carrying a Golden Record bearing recordings and images of life on Earth. In all likelihood Voyager will outlive humanity. THE FARTHEST celebrates these magnificent machines, the men and women who built them and the vision that propelled them farther than anyone could ever have hoped.
