Turas Bóthair is back with a brand new series on TG4



Date Posted: April 8, 2021

Turas Bóthair is back with some familiar and new faces! The Irish Language Broadcast series that exposes real life topical conversations filmed through rigged cameras inside cars will air on Thursday 15th April at 8pm on TG4.

Produced by Waddell Media, the six-part series puts its finger on the pulse of the Irish psyche giving us a unique slice of life normally hidden behind closed doors. As well as an array of engaging drivers and their passengers, it features moments of joy and sadness, comedy and tragedy, love and loss, friendship and romance, regret and reflection, despair and hope.

The drivers and passengers share their personal stories and views on love, relationships, sex, drag queens, drugs, illness, death, scams, Greta Thunberg and the environment, childhood obesity, WW3, 2020 and the first lockdown.

Amongst the characters we meet University students Sorcha & Seoirshín, school friends Caoimhín and Niall, sisters Nóra & Úna, taxi driver Grace with a number of different customers, and the chuckle brothers Muiris and Gabriel!

Turas Bóthair was filmed on location in Counties Donegal, Mayo, Kerry, Galway, Waterford, Derry and Antrim.
