Miriam O'Callaghan will present ‘What's Happening to Television?’
RTÉ is to broadcast a one-hour documentary on the future of television as part of the station’s on-going TV50 season.

‘What's Happening to Television?’ will go to air next Monday (October 22) and will be presented by Miriam O'Callaghan. It will aim to examine the recent great changes to the medium and discuss its uncertain future.

Contributors to the programme include David McRedmond, chief executive at TV3; Noel Curran, director general at RTÉ; Larry Bass of Shinawil Productions; James Flynn of Octagon Films; Stephen Rooke of Tile Films; and Mark Little, CEO at storyful.com.

As reported by IFTN earlier this year, the one-off documentary was produced by Tyrone Productions with production having begun at last April’s MIPTV conference in France.

The programme was produced and directed by Tom Johnson with a crew that included cameraman Colm Whelan and Steve McDowd on sound.

‘What’s Happening to Television?’ will look at the transformation of how television programmes are produced, watched and paid for and will see O'Callaghan look behind-the-scenes at ‘The Voice of Ireland’ as well as meeting a couple who put their lives on YouTube.

‘What's Happening to Television?’ will be broadcast on RTÉ One next Monday (October 22) at 9.35pm.
