(six part series about innovation in Irish agriculture which starts on the 23 October on TG4)
Feirm is a new six part series about innovation in Irish agriculture which starts on the 23 October on TG4.
Irish agriculture is thriving like never before and our produce is held in the highest regard globally. Ireland is leading the pack in terms of technological advances that are redefining farming in the 21st century. FEIRM brings us from the heartlands to the labs, from factories to forests as we get an insight into the ever-changing and adaptable world of Irish agriculture. In this exciting new series we’re given a clear view of today’s cutting-edge technology and innovation that will shape tomorrow’s farming.
Imeall is TG4’s flagship bilingual arts series. Since 2008 IMEALL (translated as edge)has been chronicling cultural life in Ireland by getting up close and personal with our leading artists in all corners of the country. Shot on location, IMEALL provides a wonderful insight into the work of our arts practitioners and with thoughtful questions from our team of artist-reporters we catch a glimpse of the creative magic that is our nation’s greatest strength. Imeall continues into its fifth season this year and is presented by Tristan Rosenstock.

We are delighted to announce that Red Shoe Production’s half hour special on the life of Seamus Heaney has won an IFTA award. This special edition of Imeall, ‘Seamus Heaney – Postscript’, celebrates the man and the poet; the father and the sibling; the friend and the confidant.
We would like to thank everyone involved in the making of this programme.
When Seamus Heaney was laid to rest in September of last year tributes flowed in from all around the world. As a poet he connected with millions of people around the world. As a teacher he nurtured thousands of students and budding poets on both sides of the Atlantic. As a friend he enriched the lives of many. And as a family man he balanced his twin roles of poet and bread-winner with ease and ensured the house was filled with warmth, kindness and love.
Seamus Heaney – Postcript was nominated in the factual category and the awards took place on Saturday April 5th.
