This programme examines what we can do to ready ourselves against this natural disaster. Scientists investigate how we can deal with it and protect ourselves better.

Closer to home, the natural world and our reliance on it is examined in Ear to the Ground.

In this new series, Ella McSweeney visits Kelly Oysters in Galway who made the decision during lockdown to bring their business online in the hopes of creating a whole new market. Helen Carroll is on the Dunany organic farm in Co. Louth and Darragh McCullough is in Wexford.

Fantasy Ireland is set in a fantastical version of contemporary Ireland, with a dollop of Irish mythology thrown into the mix. It might be animated but it's definitely not one for the younger kids.

No topic is sacred for this outrageous, post-watershed animated comedy series  — whether it’s politics, Irish history, myths and monsters, modern Ireland, the church or Aldi specials, they are lampooned with a good dose of irony, satire and unadulterated craic.
