After a hugely successful run in Series One Hector Goes… returns to RTÉ One with a new four-part series. Once again we’ll get the orange combi van back on the road and Hector will hit the high roads and the low roads, the streets and the laneways as he discovers and explores down some of the quirkier side roads of Irish life. From Fishing to the GAA, from Courting to Digging for what lies beneath the ground Hector, in his own unique style, allows himself to become “immersed” in these various Irish worlds.
Episode One: Hector Goes… Fishing
We’re an island race with a very strange attitude to the men and women who fish our waters. They put food on our tables, sure they do, and they sometimes die doing it but really, if we’re honest about it, do we give a flying fish who lands the bloody things? Hector goes to sea, talks quotas and even engages with the Spanish trawlers on his seafaring journey.
