RTÉ Commissions New Children's Documentary Series 'All Aboard'
23 Mar 2018 :
RTÉ has commissioned a new series of fun documentaries for kids set on a barge travelling down the Grand Canal. Called ‘All Aboard’, the fifteen episodes will air on RTEjr from Monday 26th March

‘All Aboard’ brings all the fun and excitement of a journey down the Grand Canal from Dublin to Shannon Harbour in Co. Offaly.

This 15X6’ family adventure is set on the beautiful barge ‘Tig Beatha’ as it drifts along the old canal. Sisters Muireann (9) and Caoimhe (7) are our hosts along with their parents Mick and Trish. The family lives on a floating home, which makes many stops on the way. Their journey takes them three weeks.

As well as having fun onboard the family visit special places and try out new activities: going through a lock, feeding swans, stenciling the name on the barge, visiting a fen, helping to clean up the canal, going out in a dinghy, looking for bats at night, getting pulled along by dray horses, meeting a lock keeper, cutting turf on the bog, aqua cycling, pony riding, going on a nature walk, catching butterflies and going fishing.

The beauty of the Grand Canal is an important part of the series, introducing young children to the wonder of this rarely seen landscape on their doorstep.

‘All Aboard’ is a sunny and entertaining series for RTEjr’s young audience.

The series was commissioned by RTÉ from independent production company Fubar Films, responsible for recent RTÉjr series Zara World, Circus World and the IFB/RTÉ backed children’s film Eliot & Me. It is produced by Fiona Bergin and directed by Fintan Connolly.

‘All Aboard’ will be broadcast Monday to Friday on RTÉ 2 at 7.10am and on RTÉjr at 9.30am and 2.30pm from Monday 26th March.

The episodes will be repeated on Saturdays and Sundays and the series will be available to view on the RTÉ Player and on the RTÉjr App anytime.
