Pet Surgeons

By | Blog, Factual, Picture, Sound | No Comments

 September 6th at 20:30 on RTÉ One

Our pets are our unconditional loving companions and so when things go wrong we do whatever we can to make things right.
At Gilabbey Veterinary Hospital in Cork, every day is a new challenge. With vet Shane Guerin at the helm, The Pet Surgeons investigate, diagnose, operate on and rehabilitate a range of animals from tiny kittens to bearded dragons and everything in between. Dealing with the diverse personalities of the pets and their owners is all in a day’s work at this busy hospital. With clients and patients arriving daily from all over the country, the staff never know who or what will come through the door next – a litter of feisty pups in need of micro-chipping, an exhausted homing pigeon that’s lost its way or an anorexic cheetah from Fota Wildlife Park.
 In the course of the series, each story is related from the perspective of both the owners and the veterinary staff. We’ll see the animals at home before and after treatment, we’ll observe over the vets shoulders as they perform the most demanding surgical procedures and we’ll meet a team of nurses so passionate about their work that they’re prepared to take their patients home with them. The Pet Surgeons is life in an animal hospital as you’ve never seen it before – must see TV for anyone who’s ever loved a pet
Malcolm Moloney was Editor on this with Alan Sullivan completing the online, Nik Panteris on Grade and Colm Mullally taking care of the Sound.

Brent Pope: Inside Out, Thursday 15th, RTE1 at 10.15

By | Blog, Factual, Picture, Sound | No Comments
Brent Pope is best known for his rugby punditry on RTÉ yet another passion of his is “Outsider Art”. This is a term coined to describe art made by people with no formal training, whose work is created outside the influence of mainstream establishments such as art schools. It is also referred to as Raw Art.
Having put out a national call for submissions in early 2015, Brent travelled across the country in search of the very best Irish Outsider Art he could find. With the help of art historian, Catherine Marshall, he put together a collection of 45 paintings and drawings, which is currently being exhibited in Dublin in the Copper House Gallery from the 7th to the 25th of October. This is the first Irish only Outsider art group collection on this scale ever to be exhibited in Ireland.
Firebrand, the production company behind the IFTA Award winning series “Bully Proof” produced this insightful documentary.  All the Sound, Grade and Online post was completed here in Egg. Catch it on RTE1 on Thursday at 10.15.
