Overview

Tagging basking sharks neatly crosses the line between having ludicrous amounts of fun and doing some rather good science. We were essentially planning to creep up on something the size of a respectably plump dinosaur, before sticking a pin in it'

Amid mussel cook-offs, ill-judged corruch races and hair-raising boat-trips with legendary shark fishermen, Monty races the length of the coastline monitoring the marine animals that are his first love. With a plan to set up a network of local people to continue the good work after he's gone, Monty is on an incredible quest, joined by the kind of amazing people that turn a job into an adventure.

Accompanying the new BBC series, Monty Halls' Great Irish Escape is an unforgettable account of a unique expedition, filled with Monty's trademark charm, humour and boundless energy.
