Everything that was written after Wagner's great opera Tristan was, in some way, influenced by it. Leonard Bernstein called Tristan "the central work of all music history", and the Prelude and Liebestod contains some of the most achingly beautiful music ever composed. Following arias from Die Walkure and Die Meistersinger sung by acclaimed Australian bass-baritone Shane Lowrencev, Asher Fisch explores Wagner's musical legacy through the spacious grandeur of Bruckner's Seventh Symphony (his memorial monument to Wagner) and the overture from Chabrier's opera Gwendoline. We conclude with Richard Strauss, who drew upon Wagner's expanded orchestral palette, added his own dash of flamboyant audacity and composed the work that made the then 25-year-old a star the virtuosic orchestral showpiece Don Juan.

As a former colony and island at the edge of Europe, outside influences have always shaped our history, our culture, and our design. Angela and Sandra look at how centuries of migration, invasion and colonisation have resulted in a constant ebb and flow of influence from abroad. We discover a modern take on the Norman Tower House on the campus of Trinity College. We learn how Dutch graphic designers shaped Ireland's visual culture in the 1950s and how the Scandinavian Design Report in 1962 led to the setting up of the influential Kilkenny Design Workshops, bringing a wave of European designers to Ireland to help unlock a uniquely Irish design style. We see how Irish designers and architects embraced these outside influences, and in time went on to influence others as we go inside the award-winning and celebrated Bocconi Institute in Milan, designed by Grafton Architects.

The first episode in the series features some of Ireland's most accomplished traditional craft makers from Joe Hogan's basket designs to Seamus Gills silverwork, as well as Irish designers whose work has found a global audience, like Orla Kiely, and award-winning architects who talk about their Irish influences as they write the next chapter in Ireland's design story.
