RTÉ Announce Spring & Summer Schedule
29 Apr 2004 :

RTÉ have issued a press release with the highlights of their Spring and Summer schedule including People in Need as well as new drama, current affairs and chat show productions.

In the statement RTÉ also reveals their performance in the first 3 months of this year, in which the combined channel share in prime time (6-11.30pm) was up by 3% year-on-year.

Plans to continue this growth are reliant upon their Spring Summer schedule. Among the featured highlights are:

The Bloomsday centenary will be marked with four programmes being broadcast on and around June 16th. Ulysses: A Reader's Guide is a 90-minute documentary guide to Joyce’s novel ‘Ulysses’. It sets out to provide a popular, accessible, insightful first engagement with the novel, in a highly visual, witty and innovative manner, in keeping with the extraordinary nature of the novel itself. The International Emmy Award-winning Is There Anyone Who Understands Me? by Sean Ó Mordha will be re-graded and broadcast alongside another of the master director's great works One Day In The Life - a snapshot of that extraordinary day, the original Bloomsday.
