Description
Ireland's tradition of lighthouse building stretches back to ancient times. This four-part documentary tours several Irish lighthouses and a lightship; chronicles the dangerous history and romantic legends associated with them; and explores what it was like to be a lighthouse keeper before computer automation. Standing in picturesque yet deceptively treacherous locales, Ireland's coastal beacons testify to the engineering genius and selfless bravery of those who built and manned them, and to a unique and now vanished way of life. The lighthouses viewed are Hook Head, the Daunt Lightship, Ballycotton, Fastnet, Bull & Calf Rocks, Skelligs, Tory Island, Maidens, Roches Point, and Baily. Marvels of architecture and engineering, lighthouses illuminate some of the Earth's most remote, unspoilt, and inhospitable places. This program—like the others in this series—explore both these isolated beacons of hope and the fascinating, dramatic stories of their keepers with tales of danger, ingenuity, and determination that evoke a bygone era that lives on in folklore and memory.
