Consuming Passions Series 2

2008, 8 x 25 minutes

The series takes an entertaining and affectionate look at people whose obsessions range from cuddling reptiles to piloting light aircraft, living rockabilly, dancing tango, driving trucks, flying birds of prey, whispering to horses and sailing into the sunset!

Everyone has one great passion in their life, some are just a little bit different.

Consuming Passions is an eight part series produced by Wildfire Films for RTÉ.


 One of Irelands few remaining strands of television documentaries this series engages our attention with well-told stories rater than sensationalised gimmicks. The series provides a salutary reminder of the enduring value of intellegent, crafted documentaries that shine new light into otherwise onscure corners of society. Over the past eight weeks Consuming Passions has brought us entertaining insights into a variety of rich subcultures.
