Dan Joe Kelleher of LTV has compiled a wonderful selection of past and present video footage for this evening’s LTV Sunday broadcast. The following is the intended schedule:
5.30pm Mass from St. John’s Well, Mushera in June 2013. This is a repeat showing by popular request. The Celebrant is Fr. Jackie Corkery.
6.30pm A variety of excerpts from various current and past programmes beginning with Macroom’s Annual New Year’s Day Hunt 2014. This is followed by a brief visit to the 2013 Christmas Pantomime at the Briery Gap in Macroom entitled “Babes in the Wood”. Next we have a recording from “Éigse” 2004 in Ballyvourney. We then visit “The Rambling House” in Boherbue where hopefully we shall get to see one of the very best recordings ever of the traditional “Brush Dance”. And we finish with a delightful “Round the Fireside” feature recorded in the home of a French Family who have been coming on an annual basis to this wonderful holiday home in Aubane and who are most interested and proficient in Irish and Breton traditional music. This evening’s LTV transmission is scheduled to conclude at 8.30 or soon thereafter. Happy viewing! (S.R.)
UPDATE: Weather conditions appear to have affected transmission equipment necessary for broadcasting on Channels 30 and 35 UHF which serve the Millstreet area. Dan Joe has indicated that the above programme line-up will be retransmitted at a future date when the equipment faults are corrected. It’s quite possible that the current broadcast may be available in the LTV1 Macroom area and its surroundings. Apologies for this interruption in transmission but one has no control over weather related effects. (S.R.)
