08 May Secrets of the Irish Landscape Documentary
RTE, the Irish state broadcaster, has recently produced a television series called ‘Secrets of the Irsh Landscape’. Presented by popular wildlife personality Derek Mooney, it consists of three hour-long, documentary-style programmes that investigate the natural history of Ireland’s flora, fauna and landscape.
The series was groundbreaking for RTE because the producers invited submissions from independant video makers for the first time. In the end they selected work from a small handful of external photographers – one of whom, I’m delighted to say, was me. The programmes include around twenty of my HD video clips, many of which also feature prominantly in the trailers and opening sequences for the shows.
The first programme aired last Sunday. If you missed it, catch it on RTE player here. The remaining two programmes will be shown on RTE 1, on Sunday May 12th and Sunday May 19th, at 6.30pm.
Below is a sample reel of some of my video footage and timelapse photography that appears in the documentary:
