This is a 2 x 50 min documentary series, commissioned by RTE about the Burren, in the West of Ireland. Debut screening April 2021. Narrated by Brendan Gleeson had audience figures of 1 million people in Ireland. The Burren, Heart of Stone is stunningly beautiful documentary, ferociously big and bold n its scope. It brings epic and intimate blue chip natural history, modern science and filmmaking to work together to uncover the story of the West of Ireland, the wildlife, people and place. It shows the birth of the landscape, how it has evolved into what it is today, mysterious, beautiful, and rugged. We witness wildlife and their struggles to survive, the ebb and flow of climate changes, and human populations in Ireland, stretching right back into prehistory, and the emergence of the Irish as a distinct people.
