Ire­land with Si­mon Reeve BBC2, 8pm

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR TV WEEK -

The ad­ven­turer re­turns with a new two-parter ex­plor­ing the Repub­lic of Ire­land and North­ern Ire­land. Both form one of the world’s most beau­ti­ful is­lands in the world: a re­gion steeped in history, cul­ture and be­lief, but one with a com­plex and trou­bled past. The first stop is County Wex­ford where Si­mon ex­am­ines the start of the long, tur­bu­lent re­la­tion­ship be­tween Bri­tain and Ire­land. He also takes a paramo­tor flight up along the coast, then heads to Cork where he joins the thou­sands who make the ex­haust­ing climb up the sa­cred moun­tain of Croagh Pa­trick.
