THE SECRET LIFE OF THE SHANNON
Two part series starts May 26th at 6:30pm on RTÉ 1 as part of the RTÉ Goes Wild season
Following a year in the life of the River Shannon, wildlife cameraman and presenter Colin Stafford Johnson has camped on its banks, lived on a barge, explored its tributaries in a traditional canoe - all in a quest to film the natural history of the Shannon as it has never been seen before.
For 340 kms the river carves its way south through the heart of the country almost splitting Ireland in two. 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.
THE SECRET LIFE OF THE SHANNON was funded by RTÉ, BAI, ESB, Waterways Ireland, ESB, NPWS, The Heritage Council & produced with the support of investment incentives to the Irish Film Industry provided by the Government of Ireland
