TG4's New Children's Art Series 'Ár Scéal' Set for October TX Date
25 Oct 2018 : Nathan Griffin
‘Ár Scéal’ (26 x 11’) is a new and original Irish language live action series produced by Meangadh Fíbín for TG4.

This ambitious series follows presenter, Úna Ní Fhlatharta, in her funky art-filled van, as she visits 52 primary schools nationwide to collect delightful stories and lovingly illustrated by the children themselves. All stories on the show are newly written by the award winning children's author Patricia Forde.

Each episode sees Úna and the children draw inspiration from their unique story to create imaginative and innovative artwork that will allow the story to come alive. Both Úna and the children enjoy creating and making before they eventually listen to the story being told in full by one of the schoolchildren. These beautiful art projects can easily be attempted by the young audience at home or in the classroom.

‘Ár Scéal’ will also introduce Niamh Ní Fhátharta, a fresh new animator from the Aran Islands, who has taken the childrens' art work and created a wonderful animation to complement their story. The combined effort of the children’s artwork and newly created animation is a wonderful addition to the children's narration of their story.

Darach Ó Tuairisg, producer with Meangadh Fíbín said:

“We are extremely proud about this exciting series which connects Cúla4 na nÓg and TG4 with its young audience.  We hope the viewer will have as much fun watching the series as we had producing it. Young people's programming is a key element of public broadcasting and it's great to see TG4 embracing this. This series shows young people on screen and highlights both the diversity and similarities of young Irish speakers from all over the country".

‘Ár Scéal’ encourages both reading and creativity in its young audience and reflects TG4's commitment to producing indigenous content for its Young People’s schedule.

Ár Scéal’ was commissioned by TG4 with the help of the Section 481 film relief fund, and will air every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from Monday, October 29th on Cúla 4 na nÓg at 9:15am.
