This week, Beidh Aonach Amárach - which captures the excitement, tension and fun at Ireland's country fairs - visits Clogher Valley Agricultural Show in County Tyrone.
Proinsias Ó Donnghaile from Augher is showing his vintage tractor; Sean McGovern and his four daughters from Clogher are going for top spot in the cattle classes at their home show and across in the horse rings - Dianne Crean from Tralee and Ballinasloe's Tom Mac Lochlainn - are judging.
Meanwhile, show secretary - Ruth Montgomery - is making sure everything runs smoothly and welcomes special guest Dame Mary.
With 140 agricultural shows across Ireland, the show scene is hugely popular with competitors and spectators. Every year thousands of people spend months of preparation before travelling the country to take part in the competitions every weekend.
The series is produced and directed by local girl - Bernadette Morris - who spent several months throughout 2018 with cameras and crews to capture the stories of the people of all ages and backgrounds who vie for the top spots in a startling array of classes.
We see competitors giving everything to be Best in Show -- from cakes to cattle; flower-arranging to sheep-shearing, show-jumping to shiny cars, never-mind the best vegetables; dogs; birds; clothes; art and craft.
Producers join the army of volunteers who organise and judge these events. The pressure is on when several thousand people are going to descend on a village for the “show”.
Beidh Aonach Amárach - which will be screened on TG4 at 9:30pm on Thursday - was produced by Crawford McCann Ltd for TG4 and BBC Northern Ireland with funding support from Northern Ireland Screen’s Irish Language Broadcast Fund.
The programme was produced and directed by Bernadette Morris and was Executive Produced by Mairéad Ní Nuadháin and Kelda Crawford-McCann for Crawford McCann Film & TV.
