Adare’s RTÉ Series ‘Instrumental’ Awarded in Berlin
2013-09-13 13:15 : By Julie Browne
Irish conductor David Brophy presented RTÉ One's 'Instrumental'.
The BAI backed RTÉ One series ‘Instrumental’ has been voted as one of the ‘7 Best Formats’ in 2013 by Public Service Broadcasters from the European Broadcasting Union.

The event took place on Tuesday 10th September in Berlin where Brian Graham MD from Adare Productions presented the format to TV industry leaders.

“We are thrilled at the recognition and it underlines the huge importance of the BAI Sound & Vision scheme to Irish television makers. The bottom line is, if the BAI had not stepped forward, this series would not have happened and Irish television would not have been recognised in that line up of the ‘7 Best Formats’ on the european stage. With their support, RTÉ commissioning editor Grainne McAleer’s enthusiasm and the backing of a very talented production team, European broadcasters have one more reason to pay attention to TV production in Ireland”.

'Instrumental' aired in October 2012 for 6 weeks on RTÉ One. It seeked to courage the public to learn how to play instruments with Brent Pope, Manuela Spinelli and John Murray with partnering members of the public to learn a musical instrument over a course of four months.

Over a course of escalating challenges and public performances each week, their journey culminates on stage at the National Concert Hall as they play a solo with the RTE Concert Orchestra.

The show was presented by Irish conductor David Brophy., who is the Principal Conductor of the RTÉ Concert Orchestra

The series was developed with Aileen O’ Reilly. Colin Cowman produced and Shane Callan edited in Highwire.

Further information about the series ‘Instrumental is available on their website.
