Following on from the huge success of TV3’s– ‘Cork Mega Port’ in April 2014, TV3 have commissioned a second series with another four episodes, due to air in 2015. This fly on the wall style documentary will once again follow the staff at the Port of Cork, but this time through the summer months.
 
As well as the many scheduled container ships and bulk carriers, series two, will feature tourism within Cork Harbour, in particularly the cruise liners and passenger ferries visiting the Port of Cork and the positive impact these calls have on the region. Series two will also focus on commercial and leisure working together to ensure Cork Harbour is a safe harbour for everyone to enjoy.
 
Goldhawk Media Ltd, who produced the first series, will also produce the second series which promises to give another exciting insight into the everyday operations of the Port and the people behind it. Some familiar faces seen in ‘Cork Mega Port’ series one will make a reappearance, while there will also be some new faces.
 
Series Producer Bernadette Bos said “After the winter storms and tempestuous seas, this new series will be able to focus on the way Cork Mega Port carries on working, whilst thousands of local people and visitors enjoy the harbour, its history and the leisure it provides.”
 
Speaking at the announcement of the second series of ‘Cork Mega Port’ on TV3, Port of Cork Chief Executive Brendan Keating said: “Series one proved to be far more popular than we ever imagined and we were thrilled with the positive response from viewers.’
 
‘Our port business can sometimes seem a little daunting to people, but I feel Goldhawk Media captured it in a way that made viewers interested and eager to learn about day to day operations at the Port of Cork. I have no doubt that series two will be equally as interesting, and probably more popular.’
 
‘Cork Mega Port’ series two will air on TV3 in 2015 and will include four one hour episodes. Don’t miss it!
