Summary, etc.: From its ocean shores and wooded glens to its isolated mountains, Ireland's breathtaking landscapes seem untouched by time. Narrated by Jason O'Mara, this enchanting episode from public television's honored natural history series etches a vivid portrait of the Emerald Isle, graced with a host of plants and animals that thrive in one of the most varied landscapes in Europe. Rare native flowers, colonies of sea birds, dolphins and peregrine falcons, and the legendary racehorses of the Irish National Stud are only part of Ireland's fascinating story. Ireland's timeless beauty has survived the ages. But, what is old to us is still young to the land, which has been transformed again and again. Sheathed in ice; sculpted by retreating glaciers; covered in vast forests of oak; reshaped by human history; Ireland's story is still unfolding.
