[edit] Information

After 40 years, Sir Terry Wogan returns to Ireland, stepping back into his past to explore how the country helped shape him, and looking at what it means to be Irish in the 21st century.

[edit] Dublin and the South

Terry travels back to Dublin, the city he left behind as a teenager, and all the way back to his birth town of Limerick, taking in the length and breadth of the heart-stoppingly beautiful Irish coast en route. For Terry this is an opportunity to cherish the old and to seek out and celebrate the new face of Ireland. Terry is in his element as he heads out west in the company of his lugubrious driver, Dave. En route to the house he grew up in, he discovers a 'moving' statue of the Virgin Mary, suffers bad weather on the Ring of Kerry, and in Tralee he recalls Ireland's Loveliest Ladies competition, as he asks himself what it means to be Irish today.

[edit] Belfast and the North

Terry reaches the halfway mark in the epic journey around his homeland. Having travelled the southern half of the Republic, where he grew up, it is the turn of the north, much of which is now quite literally a different country. After sharing memories of his buttoned-up childhood holidays in Galway and witnessing a seismic shift in Catholic prudery when 180 Irish ladies throw off all their clothes and take a 'Dip in the Nip' for charity, Terry heads for the border, where he finds plenty of reasons to be cheerful - football replacing fighting in the notorious Creggan housing estate, a Peace Bridge hoping to bring Protestants and Catholics together in Derry and a London Docklands-style transformation of the famous shipyards in Belfast where the Titanic was built.
