Blue Planet 2 is what everyone is talking about right now but apparently, we’ve been missing out on an even more spectacular viewing much closer to home.
The 45th annual British Documentary Awards, the Grierson Awards took place in London this week. And Wild Ireland: The Edge of the World – Episode 1 picked up the award for Best Natural History Documentary.
“The winning film combined outstanding direction and photography, offering many unexpected delights along the way – animals, history, folklore and history seamlessly interweave with an exquisitely crafted and presented script,” said the Jury Chair, Amy Flanagan.
It was made by Irish production company Crossing the Line and broadcast on the BBC and TG4 earlier this year. Wild Ireland explores nature at its best along the iconic Wild Atlantic Way. Directors John Murray and Cepa Giblin, alongside principal cameraman Domenico Pontillo from Kerry and series host Colin Stafford Johnson, have made something really magical.
As if you needed any more excuse to go on that roadtrip, one look at this will sway you to pack up that car and hit the road.
