There were lengthy discussions about numerous TV shows with many Ireland Calls members listing what they liked (or don't like) to watch. TV series mentioned included 'Dancing with the Stars', 'Paul Merton in India', 'Walking With Cavemen', David Attenborough's 'Life in Cold Blood' - all about reptiles, amphibians etc, 'Around the World in 80 Faiths', 'Ice Road Truckers' and many others.

One member praised the Peter Owen-Jones' production 'How to live a Simple Life' which shows us that we need to get back to the simple things in life - a roof over our head, food to keep us going and a real appreciation of the natural world around us. Another member discussed the documentary 'The Lost World of Tibet' which presents the story of the Dalai Lama, with archive footage of Tibet from the 1930s to the 1950s, including comment from the eminent Buddhist monk himself.
