You Should Really See a Doctor

You Should Really See a Doctor – Wednesdays 8.30pm RTE 1
After a successful first series, the RTÉ Television medical diagnosis show, You Should Really See a Doctor is back.
From Donegal to Cork, from Kerry to Dublin, Dr. Pixie McKenna and Dr. Phil Kieran have been on tour around the country this summer, visiting events with their pop-up clinic to offer on the spot free consultations and health checks.
Once again they have been examining the symptoms and ailments that are bothering the country’s adults and children – the lumps, bumps, pains, aches, sleep issues, skin problems, tingling and toilet troubles – whatever has been irritating the nation. From hay-fever to suspected menopause to children’s tonsillitis the doctors prod and probe to help find solutions.
Pixie and Phil also meet those who have been self-diagnosing – those who believe that they may be living with Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis or even cancer. We’ve all been there, turning a headache into a suspected tropical disease with a few clicks on the computer! Now it’s time to consult the real doctors.
Produced by Independent Pictures, we completed the Sound Mix and Online editing for this series.

Former world champion boxer Bernard Dunne joins the RTÉ team with Bernard Dunne’s Mythical Heroes, a brand new six-part series bringing the stories of the heroes of Irish mythology to life. Bernard will take viewers to sites across Ireland synonymous with stories like Fionn MacCumhall, Cúchulain and the Children of Lir to name a few.
Each episode features one particular legend as Bernard takes on the role of storyteller, using a combination of documentary footage, live action reconstructions and stunning animation to re-create these compelling and dramatic tales. In a world where children are captivated by superheroes of all shapes, sizes and skills – this series shows our audience how Irish superheroes were an original of their kind whilst educating them about life of old in the best way, with out them realising it!
This charming show was produced by Mark Warren for Firebrand Productions, directed by Hugh Farley and was edited by Michael O’Sullivan. All of the sound, grade and online was completed by us and our VFX team added the magic and sparkle.
The series started Thursday on RTE 2 at 5pm and runs for 6 weeks. Catch the first episode on RTE Player now and learn all about Setanta.
