‘Traffic Blues’ for Big Mountain
26 May 2009 :
Traffic Blues
‘Traffic Blues’, a new six part fly on the wall series following the Garda Traffic Corps, begins Sunday 31 May at 8.30pm on RTÉ One. Produced by Big Mountain Productions, the series aims to show just how dangerous and badly behaved we really are on our roads.

Helmed by DV directors Jonathan Levy and Mike Casey, the series shines a light on six months in the life of the Traffic Corps, primarily in three divisions; the Dublin Metropolitan division based in Dublin Castle; the Louth division taking in stations in Drogheda and Dundalk and the Donegal division focusing on Burnfoot and Letterkenny.

Shot on DVCam the series was filmed over six months with guards from the three units accompanied by the film crew as they went about their daily business of enforcing the laws of the road throughout the country. Paddy Downey was on sound and Bonnie Dempsey provided additional camera support.

Producers for Big Mountain were Jane Kelly and Philip McGovern. The company, which has bases in Newry and Dundalk, managed the offline edit at their Louth HQ with the online and sound mix edit completed at Screen Scene in Dublin (editor Edmund Slattery).

Big Mountain is currently working on a one off landmark documentary for BBC NI and have a ten part entertainment series in the works – also for BBC NI.
