    Ireland's National Parks - Travel Video.
    VHS/NTSC. Questar Video. Shades of emerald softly blend into hues of jade and olive throughout this lovely land. From its misted hillsides and lonely moors, to its forests of stately oak and stands of evergreen yew, all Ireland seems steeped in this lovely color that's synonymous with life itself. Nowhere is this green feast for the eyes more apparent than in these five national parks of Ireland: Killarney, Wicklow Mountains, Connemara, Glenveagh, and Burren. These protected parklands embrace glaciated lakes, fog-wreathed mountains, stone-ringed shorelines and mist-shrouded heaths. Stunning film footage of this storied land captures Ireland's sweeping countryside jeweled with the morning dew or whispering beneath the soft rains of early evening. Wild and beautiful creatures roam the sheltered confines of the parks, wandering beside abbeys and castles, ancient ruins and homesteads. Merlin and Peregrine falcons hunt; feral goats, red deer and Connemara ponies graze, while foxes browse beside lakebeds alive with otters. From the lowlands to the mountainsides - from limestone reefs to boggy fields of peat - visit these Irish parklands and experience the green hues of their best natural finery. 65 minutes.

    DVD. Approximately 2 Hours. Program 1: Land of the Falling Lakes - In the heart of Croatia lies a hidden treasure--Plitvice Lakes National Park. This extraordinary natural preserve is a fairy tale world that has lain undisturbed for centuries. That is, until Civil War tore the Balkans apart a decade ago. But, Plitvice has an almost supernatural ability to regenerate and heal itself. The restless landscape is constantly in motion, continually building new waterfalls and pools, merging its elements to create a place like no other. In this spellbinding episode from the award-winning PBS series, witness the savagery and splendor of nature that has created a kingdom formed, and ruled, by water. Here, one of the continent's largest population of brown bears, packs of wolves and lynx, and a host of other rare and remarkable creatures that have all but disappeared elsewhere, seek safe haven. Each season brings its own unique beauty to one of the last ancient European forests and an unparalleled world of crystal-clear lakes that flow into one another through a series of spectacular terraces and cascading waterfalls. It is a land of wonders. Program 2: **Ireland** - From its ocean shores and wooded glens to its isolated mountains, Ireland's breathtaking landscapes seem untouched by time. Narrated by Jason O'Mara, this enchanting episode from public television's honored natural history series etches a vivid portrait of the Emerald Isle, graced with a host of plants and animals that thrive in one of the most varied landscapes in Europe. Rare native flowers, colonies of sea birds, dolphins and peregrine falcons, and the legendary racehorses of the Irish National Stud are only part of Ireland's fascinating story. Ireland's timeless beauty has survived the ages. But, what is old to us is still young to the land, which has been transformed again and again. Sheathed in ice; sculpted by retreating glaciers; covered in vast forests of oak; reshaped by human history; Ireland's story is still unfolding.

    Kilkenny - Travel Video.
    DVD. Global Treasures. 10 Minutes. Kilkenny is one of the most beautiful towns in the Republic Of Ireland and numerous historic buildings highlight the city's colourful past. Since the end of the 12th century, Kilkenny Castle, located close to the Nore River, has been the town's most prominent landmark. In 1391 the castle was acquired by the Butler's, an aristocratic family that influenced Kilkenny right up until the 20th century. The city was founded by Saint Canice who in the 6th century had a monastery built close to the River Nore and at the time of the Anglo Norman invasion of Ireland in 1169 four church communities existed here. Located in Parliament Street, Rothe House dates back to 1594 and is another of the city's popular historic sights. Renovated in 1966, the building complex contains three houses that are grouped around two tranquil inner courtyards. Kilkenny has retained its unique historic atmosphere right up to the present day and can thus justifiably be referred to as `The jewel of the Irish Middle Ages'.

    Dublin Ireland - Travel Video.
    DVD. Vista Point. 26 Minutes. Dublin is the capital of the Irish Republic and is a city of musicians, poets and dreamers. Its Georgian buildings, whisky distilleries and historic castles are tangible and colourful reminders of bygone times and numerous well preserved buildings, cafes, churches and idyllic canals also add to the captivating atmosphere of this fun loving city. One of the city's main landmarks is a splendid structure, Halfpenny Bridge, which derived its name due to a toll that was once extracted from those who crossed it. Dublin Castle is one of the city's oldest buildings. It has seen much transformation and is a combination of several building styles. After the Vikings, the Normans conquered the city and ruled over it for seven hundred years and under King Henry The Eighth Dublin became the capital of what was then a British colony. Trinity College is Ireland's oldest and most venerable university. It was founded in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth The First. The high standard of education offered here has attracted famous pupils such as Jonathan Swift, Henry Grattan and Samuel Becket. Dublin's General Post Office was once the site of an important historical event. Under the leadership of Padraig Pearse and James Connolly around a hundred men occupied the post office and thus began Ireland's struggle for Independence. In Easter, 1916, the Irish Republic was born. Bursting with pubs and music this most hospitable city is a wonderful combination of lively city life and infectious Irish blarney!
