    Always thought of the Burren as this barren wasteland full of stones, never realised there was such bio-diversity in it.

    Oh brilliant didn't realise there was a part two.

    That was an amazing programme. Hats off to rte for once. Probably the best output since 'the Field' at Christmas. Beautifuly made programme about a beautiful place, there were moments that were up there with any nature show in any part of the world, particularly the butterfly.
    I've never actually seen a cuckoo either and have been hearing them every summer of my life! Amazing how they know to head off to Africa!

    Part two is more of a history lesson, it's brilliant stuff, wish there was a part three.

    They should have stuck to more practical and current stuff as to what's happening on the burren now, a brief overview of its genealogy would have been better and focus more on the current flora and fauna as it is now

    Should have been at least a four part series. But anyway still a great show.

    Anyone who enjoyed this will love the earlier docufilm “The Silver Branch” made by the same cinematographer and director Katrina Costello. Also about the Burren, it’s visually the most stunning piece of work I’ve ever seen. https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2018/0917/994332-the-silver-branch-absorbing-and-deserving-of-garlands/
