PBS Special - Visions of Ireland

The 18th program in WLIW's successful VISIONS series showcases the land of saints and scholars like never before. A helicopter-mounted camera shares the vantage point of the Irish faeries of ancient lore for serene aerial views above the fog and mist, the remote Skellig Islands, the magnificent windswept Cliffs of Moher - and the perfect angle from which to kiss the Blarney Stone. The "Emerald Isle" is a place where myth and legend coexist with a booming modern legacy of invigorated economic strength. VISIONS OF IRELAND reveals all its "forty shades of green" following an itinerary from Sligo to Belfast to Galway to Dublin that explores timeless country glens, abundant fishing ports, the famous golf courses of counties Kerry and Cork, and more. Rich narration gives context for the stunning high definition aerial and groundviews of this little island of grand historical significance, all set to a soundtrack that includes the fiddles and pipes of traditional ji gs and reels and modern Celtic rock.
