Most people love nothing more than rural rolling hills, beautiful vistas and adorable animals.
And BBC Two releases a new show from November 15th 2019 which involves all three of those things.
Six episodes take a look at the lives of Mountain Vets living in a very special part of Ireland.
According to the BBC, “though things might not always go according to plan and tragedies do happen, the Mountain Vets do everything they can for the animals in their care.”
We can imagine that a tear or two could be shed during the series, so before we start blubbing over them, let’s meet the cast of BBC’s Mountain Vets.
What is Mountain Vets?
BBC Two welcomed a brand new series in November 2019 with Mountain Vets.
The programme takes a look at three different veterinary practices located within the ancient Kingdom of Mourne, Northern Ireland.
It looks like there’s never a dull moment in Mourne as the trio of practices respond to over 100 clinic cases and call-outs a day. There is a diverse range of animals that require help hailing from clinics, farms and smallholdings.
