Coast - Series 3 - Galway to Baltimore


The Coast experts are exploring brand new territory - the wild west coast of Ireland, from Galway Bay to the Fastneck Rock, Ireland's most southerly point. Neil Oliver traces the inspiration behind Columbus's journey to America and hears how an Irishman could have reached the New World nine hundred years before him. Alice Roberts explores the botanical puzzle of 'The Burren', a limestone landscape where Arctic plants grow next to Mediterranean flowers, and visits the monastery on the tiny island of Skellig Michael. Miranda Krestovnikoff finds dolphins in the Shannon estuary and reveals the secret ingredient in seaweed.
