Cork teenagers will be at the centre of a new documentary which is to be aired by Virgin Media Television in the coming months.
A new documentary will focus on the Cork Life Centre, which caters for students who have been unable to gain a mainstream education.
The Cork Life Centre is a voluntary organization offering an alternative learning environment to young people who find themselves outside the mainstream education system.
The brand new series will take viewers inside the Life Centre school, offering an insight into the compelling and inspirational stories of teenagers who have turned to the centre seeking an education.
The documentary follows the students for a year as they prepare for exams and other tests with the help of teachers and tutors volunteering in the centre.
Cork’s Fota Wildlife Park will also be highlighted by Virgin Media in the coming months.
A new show, ‘Fota: Into the Wild’, promises to get viewers up close and personal with the animals and keepers at the famous park.
The family-friendly series also aims to showcase some of the conservation projects being initiated from the park which are rejuvenating endangered species all over the world.
Meanwhile, famous Cork chef Rachel Allen will return to TV screens for ‘The Restaurant’ which will see six celebrities don the kitchen whites in a bid to create the perfect menu.
Virgin Media said the show is returning with a fantastic line-up of celebrities putting on the Head Chef uniform and taking on the challenge to create a menu that will please the diners and get a five-star rating from resident critics, Marco Pierre White and Rachel Allen.
