Description

Not a programme about a race of vampires, but another episode of the endlessly informative documentary series. This time, its bats bats bats, getting close to a much-maligned mammal and dispelling a few myths. There are many species of bats in Ireland, including Leisler's bat, which is rare elsewhere in the world, and the Lesser Horseshoe, our most vulnerable bat, a little critter no bigger than a plum. Watching this footage, you're sure to find yourself falling for them all - as well as learning a few important lessons about how to deal with bats.

Notes

  An Éamon de Buitléar production for UTV. De Buitléar was one of Ireland's best-loved environmentalists, transforming the national consciouness through his pioneering work.
