Presented by the intrepid Colin Stafford-Johnson, natural history series LIVING THE WILDLIFE is back on our screens for an incredible 8th season. Spanning the length and breadth of the country, this beautifully shot series once again takes us on a fascinating wildlife journey meeting all sorts of creatures including Swifts and Geese from picturesque Westport.
Featuring slightly tamer animals, THE PET SURGEONS is a brand-new RTÉ series that goes behind the scenes at one of Ireland leading veterinary practices, revealing the emotional owners, sick animals and dedicated vets who use state of the art technology to perform complicated operations, repair fractures and apply the latest treatments from physiotherapy and spinal realignment to chemo.
Finally, in another festival nod, historical Mayo documentary - Nancy Corrigan Sky Blazer - has been officially selected for the Chagrin Documentary Film Festival in Ohio - winners announced on Saturday 8th October. Nancy Corrigan tells the story of a young girl who emigrated from poverty in Achill in 1914 and went on to become one of the first female commercial pilots in US Aviation History.
On running a company in the rural west of Ireland, MD Gillian Marsh said:
“We consider ourselves very lucky to be based in the wilds of Mayo. There are not many offices where you can look out the window to see a wild deer peeping back in at you.”
