Really enjoyed the prog last night. Especially as Ashford Star managed to get into one of the shots on the 1st level even if it was for only about 2 seconds spinning smiley sticking its tongue out. Have to get it on DVD now so that I can bore any visitors by pausing it over and over again.

Looking forward to the rest of the series. As usual you put together a great programme.

Cheers

Fantastic programme, I did not expect to see Dick nearly taking flight from his chair at the start. Look forward to the next one. Well done to Dick and the crew, well worth the 19yr wait.

Thanks to all who sent nice emails, on and off list. For real addicts,
there is a website for the series which is growing daily as I find time
to write stuff for it. I'd post a link if I knew how to, but its on the
RTE website. Regards, Dick.

Excellent. thumbs up Watched it over lunch time today. Great stuff, congrats to Dick and all concerned in this production.

PS: Might Series 1 get re-released sometime on DVD or re-aired even on Sat channel (eg Discovery, etc)?

Better still, they should make a complete box set of the lot! How many are there I thought there is 4 in total? The Barrow, Grand, Shannon and of course the new one?
Re: Royal Programme

I've been trying for years to get them to issue boxed sets of the
previous four series because I get a lot of requests for them, a
surprising number from the United States. As far as I can gather
there's some problem with the rights, though I can't get a very clear
answer on this. There should be no such problem about the current
(fifth) series. Queries should be directed to Tile Films. Regards. Dick.

From todays IWA monthly bulletin....

"New six-part TV Series about Irish Waterways

In the early 1990s, naturalist, poet and broadcaster Dick Warner, made a journey by barge through the canals of Ireland which was documented in the Irish television series ‘Waterways’. In this new series, Dick Warner returns to the inland waterways of Ireland, this time to the Royal Canal, fully reopened earlier this year. He will be taking 'Rambler', a 70ft Royal Canal tug barge built in 1878 and which last travelled on the canal in 1923, from Dublin to Lough Ree. Dick meets both experts and ordinary people who live along the banks, learning from them about its heritage, history and wildlife.

For more information please see www.rte.ie/tv/programmes/waterways.html"

My box didn't record it last night but I've just watched it on RTE Player.
What a delight. An excellent production. Fine camera work with
erudite commentary and great editing as well. The extracts from the Ruth
Delaney trip were fascinating. Can't wait to see the rest of it.

Well lets hope the new series will entice them to get there act together and create a full box set, it would really finish it off.

Alun, I dont remember that one??

All I remember is:
The Grand on 45M
River Suck-Shannon up stream on the Dutch Barge
Barrow on a small steam type boat?
Curious about the 4th series...

Hi folks,

the missing links are I believe, W3- "Charles Whitton" [ex RNLI] on the Barrow, and W4 "Oxlip" [ steam launch ] on the Shannon Erne.

I have purposely not commented until now on the first episode but with all the good wishes expressed so far I feel I must. The series I believed from the start would be stunning and this from observing the film people go about their business, a really professional and hard working bunch. I had a feeling from the start it would be "warts and all" and the Rambler's entry into Spencer Dock proves that and the "nose job" club in canal boats is an elite one. The "effin bridge" reference of course was classic and proves that the production side were indeed watching what the forum was saying on the saga.
The Connons must be congratulated on delivering the goods and the star sits in Carrick as proof. It wasn't a "walk in the park", and apart from the trip itself there was always the "film thing" going on. Dick and his people have produced something which will give endless enjoyment and a "good news" story which will be hard to beat.

Joe.
