Emmy Award winning cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson returns to RTÉ for another exciting series of Living the Wildlife.

Colin's endless enthusiasm and energy is inspiring as he hunts for elusive otters and majestic great-crested grebes; discovers the minute differences between different species of dragonflies and bees and comes nose to nose with the largest fish in the Atlantic. As always, Colin captures a wealth of fascinating footage as he treks the fields, forests, coasts and mountainsides of Ireland.
