Filming Ireland's Harsh Landscapes

Season 42 Episode 17 | 7m 34s

Director John Murray has filmed animals all over the world but has always wanted to capture the lives of the creatures in this extraordinarily rocky outcrop on the west coast of Ireland - the Burren. Nestled against the unforgiving coast of the Wild Atlantic Ocean, this is a harsh landscape like almost no other.
