RTÉ Docs Set Sail From Windmill Lane In Time For TX
30 Nov 2012 : By Eva Hall
'The Radharc Squad' will air on RTÉ One on December 4
Two documentaries were racing to the post-production finish line this week in time for their air dates on RTÉ.

Nearing completion at Windmill is Ruan Magan’s ‘The Radharc Squad’, a religious documentary which tells the story of a group of Catholic priests who produced over 400 highly-influential films between 1962 and 1996. The priests filmed warzones, riots and famines worldwide, as well as the dark recesses of Irish life.

Magan directed the two-part documentary for Tyrone Productions. Philip Cullen is editing, with Matt Branton working on the grade for Windmill. Mark Henry is working on the audio mix, with Robbie O’Farrell online.

Carly Butler was the post-production supervisor on both projects.

‘The Radharc Squad’ part one is airing on RTÉ One on Tuesday December 4 at 10.15pm, with part two airing the following Tuesday.

‘A Lost Son’, a documentary in which former Minister for Justice Michael McDowell explores the death of his uncle Brian McNeill, who was killed during the Civil war in 1922, will air on RTÉ One on December 10.

The hour-long documentary has just completed post-production at Dublin post hose Windmill Lane Pictures. Director Niamh Sammon (Haughey) and producer Judy Forde (production manager on The Consumer Show) worked closely with Windmill colourist Matt Branton on the grade, while Locky Butler worked on the audio dubbing and mix.

Richard Merrigan and Eric Dolan did the graphics and Robbie O’Farrell worked online. Gordon Bruic edited the documentary.

The film will air on RTÉ on Monday December 10 at 9.30pm. See Windmill Lane’s profile on IFTN.
