3 Part TV Series on RTE- Secrets of the Irish Landscape

Starts Sunday 5th May @ 6:30pm

For this major new three part television series and Derek Mooney will follow in the footsteps of one of Ireland’s greatest unsung scientists to uncover the true extent of the extraordinary scientific journey started by Praeger. What Praeger began was a process — discovering the true makeup of Ireland’s distinct and unique plant life — that is far from over. It is still subject to much scientific endeavour and hot debate today. The story is ongoing and ever changing with new questions being asked and answered all the time.

For this series Derek Mooney, with the help of Praeger’s 1937 book ‘The Way That I Went’, will go on an epic journey around Ireland and Europe, looking back 20,000 years to unravel the true enigma surrounding Ireland’s unique and stunning eco system.

‘Secrets of the Irish Landscape’ is part funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and is an RTÁ‰ Cork Production for RTÁ‰ Television.

A major new book published by RTÁ‰ and Cork University Press, will be published to coincide with this new television series.
