The Secret Life of the Shannon

2 x 52min Natural History series for RTÉ

The Shannon is Ireland’s greatest geographical landmark and the longest river in these islands. For 340 kms the river carves its way south through the heart of the country almost splitting Ireland in two. It is both a barrier and highway – a silver ribbon holding back the rugged landscapes of the west from the gentler plains to the east. On its journey, the Shannon passes through a huge palette of rural landscapes; where on little known backwaters, Ireland’s wild animals and plants still thrive as almost nowhere else.

For a year, wildlife cameraman and presenter Colin Stafford Johnson will live on the river - camping on its banks, living on a barge, exploring its tributaries in a traditional canoe. He will be on a quest to film the natural history of the Shannon as it has never been seen before.

Funded by BAI, RTÉ, Waterways Ireland, ESB, NPWS & The Heritage Council

Hi.

Can you please pass this on to the appropriate person.

I just wanted to mail to say that whoever done the filming for The Secret Life of the Shannon, should win a award for it. It is mind blowing beautifully made. You just captured all the little details of everything.
Thanks for making something so amazing for RTE. Keep up the amazing work.
