Long-running TV show ‘School Around the Corner’ will return to screens this Christmas for a one-off special.
Ray D’Arcy will present the one-hour special, which is filming in RTÉ Studios next Monday (December 3).
Tyrone Productions has revived the series again for a Christmas special, with Noleen Golding producing and John FD Northover directing.
The popular series was first introduced on RTÉ Radio back in 1954, and transferred to RTÉ Television in 1961.
Paddy Crosbie was the original presenter, with Gerry Ryan and Frank Mitchell taking over at different times in the 90s. The series interviews a number of school kids for a humorous take on everyday life. It targets a broad family audience.
The series has repeatedly returned to RTÉ, with Tyrone responsible for a 2002 Christmas special.
D’Arcy previously presented kids TV show ‘The Den’ on RTÉ Two for nine years, and currently presents his own morning radio show on Today FM.
The show will air on RTÉ One over the Christmas period.
