TV Debut

Tomorrow marks Peter's television debut. Well, sort of. He spent a lot of this summer working as the photographer and technical adviser for an Irish-language programme about photography. While the programme will feature Peter's car, photography equipment, and technical expertise, it will not feature the man himself.

Be that as it may, he still enjoyed the work and we're both very excited to see the final product. The premise is that the presenter meets up with an Irish-language celebrity, who names several places in Ireland of personal interest or import. They then visit these places, learn a little about photography, and take pictures. At the end, there's a presentation where the celebrity gets to pick from five photographs taken during the show.

If you're in Ireland, the show is called I bhFócas and is on TG4 at 8pm on Thursdays, starting tomorrow (25 September).

If you're outside of Ireland, you still may be able to watch online, although the timing might be tricky since 8pm Irish time is 3pm Eastern US Time. Visit the TG4 website and click the TG4 Live button at the top of the page or the WebTV TG4 Live button in the TV listings column on the front page.

And if you just can't wait, you can have a peak at the title sequence.

Cool! We can't receive TG4, reception in our area is horrible. And since it's not on Freeview... But I'll try to find it online!

Cuirtear a cuid is mó suas ar cúpla lá (nó seachtain) tar éis an craoladh beo. Cliceáil ar Cláir Eile nó ar Siamsaíocht. Ach níl I bhFócas ann fós :(

Noelle - That would be great.

Babaloo - Good luck.

Laurie - I've never seen that one. I have seen one where they turn Irish celebrities into wild life photographers.

Jannie - I sure do remember you. I'll have to check in with you.

PS - Thanks for that I didn't realise you could watch the shows like that after they'd aired.

Amy - I will indeed.

WUASTC - Thanks!
