Episode 1: The Energy Estuary
Episode One reveals how everyone living in Ireland has a toe in the estuary's waters. The programme begins with a look back at one of the key moments in Irish history, as the Shannon Scheme sparked electrification and industrialisation across the country.
Just a few years later, the estuary was a centre for world aviation as flying boats on the transatlantic route stopped to refuel here. And since that day, the estuary has continued to power the Irish economy and fuel its progress.
