WWOOF series on TG4 (Irish TV). Begins on 21st March on TG4 at 10 pm, and will run for 6 weeks.

Stirling Film & Television Productions Ltd are delighted to have recently been involved in  a new lifestyle concept  for TG4, aimed at those who wish to travel and learn new skills during the recession. WWOOFÁIL follows two well known TG4 white-collar presenters – Mairéad Ní Chuaig and Conall Ó Máirtín, as they step out of the studio and into the real world, ready to get their hands dirty in search of new adventures. Novice WWOOFer Mairéad Ní Chuaig is better known as one of the glamorous TG4 weather girls, with a keen interest in fashion.  Her WWOOFing companion Conall Ó Máirtín is one of the channel’s sports pundits, with a great sense of adventure. Throughout the series we follow their journey to 6 WWOOF farms, where they spend 5 days at a time. We witness their highs and lows both in Ireland and abroad, as they meet new friends, learn new farming and lifestyle skills and experience what it is like to be a WWOOFer, an activity which so many people enjoy and benefit from throughout the world every day. 6 half hour episodes have been produced by Stirling TV Productions, which will be sure to keep the viewers intrigued as we see Mairéad and Conall learn about vegetable growing and ecology in Sligo, Buddhism and spirituality in Cavan, building houses and surfing in the Algarve, cooking and milking goats in Seville, horse-riding and folk music in Sweden, and olive picking and peacocks in Morocco! Stirling TV Productions received funding from the Irish Language Broadcast Fund and TG4 for the production. The series is sure to entertain and educate our viewers with an insightful view into various countries and cultures, and ways to be more ecologically minded in a world which is nowadays being overrun by consumerism. WWOOFÁIL commences on TG4 on Thursday 21st March at 10 pm. For more information please contact Colleen Melarkey-Beattie: Tel:+44 (0) 2890 333848 , colleen@stirlingtelevision.co.uk
