25 Years at TG4

TG4 have announced new programmes for the months ahead as they reach their milestone of 25 years on the air. Documentaries covering Whistleblowers, Dublin Bay, TB in Ireland, Colm Cille and Banknote design. Entertainment see the return of Hector as he meets with newcomers to Ireland, the Underdogs returns to seek out the next best Ladies Football team, Junior Eurovision and Na Slimmers follows six people trying to lose weight. Sport includes GAA, Rugby and Cliff Diving. Four Irish films will get their debuts on the channel Foscadh, Arracht, Doineann and The Queen V Patrick O'Donnell. The Golden Girl, The Wonder Years and Dr. Quinn will air on the channel, while boxsets on line include Scadi-noir The Killing, The Bridge and Borgen.

Alan Esslemont, Director General, TG4 said: “On October 31st this year TG4 will celebrate our 25th birthday and can reflect with some satisfaction that our programmes have brought a genuine ‘súil eile’ to Irish broadcasting and that the station’s brand has been instrumental in bringing about a change of image for the Irish language. I’d especially like to thank and congratulate all of our partners working in the independent audiovisual industry, whose imagination and creativity have underpinned TG4’s success over the last quarter century and whose latest work we are celebrating at our Autumn launch. However, when compared to the way Welsh is supported in Wales, the Irish state continues to display a clear lack of ambition for the Irish-speaking communities and for Irish language media. The present Public Service Media ecosystem in Ireland is monolithic. PSM in Ireland after the pandemic needs to be sustainable but it also needs more diversity and plurality. TG4’s Post-Covid Vision document outlines how all the state-funded audiovisual agencies, RTÉ, TG4, Screen Ireland and BAI, can be supported in a fairer, more balanced way and drive a more diverse and less centralised public media ecosystem.”
