Secrets of the Irish Landscape
An RTÉ production, 5th, 12th and 19th May
Matthew Jebb and Colin Kelleher of the National Botanic Gardens assisted in the making of
‘Secrets of the Irish Landscape’, a major three part series on RTÉ television,
presented by Derek Mooney,
which tells the history on how the Irish landscape came to be, using the very latest
scientific research. It features botanists and earth scientists to present in an
engaging way the story of Ireland’s natural history as we now understand it.
The series also celebrates the life of botanist Robert Lloyd Praeger, as Derek follows
in the footsteps of Ireland’s greatest naturalist and author of the iconic book ‘The Way That I Went’.
A preview of the show is available on the RTÉ YouTube Channel.
A book to coincide with the documentary which is published by Cork University
Press is also being released (right) by Cork University Press.
