Tonight's TV - Continuation of earlier drivel


#4650

I was there with the Howth/Sutton Brigade


#4651

Yes mate, we cottoned on that you were in attendance alright, you may have mentioned it


#4652

Nice show on Buddy Holly on BBC4 now.


#4653

Friday Night Jukebox Live on BBC4 now.


#4654

They shall not grow old on BBC2 now is an extraordinary piece of tv


#4655

Watching it- lots of poor working class ppl used as fodder


#4656

The poor cunts, this gives a decent insight into the reality of it I think


#4657

Some really great ww1 you tube clips ,lip read what the soldiers who were filmed were s actually saying then and there


#4658

This Clodagh one is an awful dose.


#4659

Theres a programme on RTE 1 on how to be good with money and Rachael spends a €1,000 a year on Hair extensions and 10% of her salary on McDonalds.


#4660

Great comedy on tv3 there now


#4661

That Wexican Verona Murphy from the IRHA knows her stuff. She was on there with Cooper and his eminently rideable but un-identified colleague.

The Murphy lassie is a great bit of stuff. She’d be a formidable challenger for a Dàil seat in Wexford given the poverty of the fuckers they currently elect.

No, but no exceptions - all fucking duds.


#4662

Ivan Yates?

:astonished:


#4663

In fairness Ivan was looking quare well last night


#4664

Dr Ciara ?


#4665

Don’t know her name but she’d get it alright. Long dark hair with a bit of cut to her…


#4666

I could only watch it this morning. I thought it was good but it’s just the standard style of RTÉ factual docs for a while. Lots of drone shots and Joe Lee, Roy Foster et al giving dramatic takes on things. 1916 fatigue is definitely a factor but that whole period really is the World War II for the world in terms of overkill. I know it sells but there’s many interesting pieces of Irish history that RTÉ should do more on. Maybe after the 100 year events.


#4667

Like the Irish genocide?


#4668

Loads of doctors on it.


#4669

The Famine could do with a good modern series on it.

A series on 1798, the Act of Union and the 1803 Rebellion.

The Home Rule movement too. Even a specific one on the IPP, Liberal Part and battle with the House of Lords.

The BBC have done a few good series on the Story of Ireland which are meaty on Celtic Ireland and the Plantations which RTÉ have also broadcast but not produced afaik.
