Slight disappointment : The graphics used for RTÉ's European Parliament Report is way out of date. They need to revamp it as soon as possible because it looks dated.

Best visuals/graphics/music package : RTÉ News. It has become a huge improvement since their news studio was revamped last January. Their news wall is the best part of it because it looks amazing when it's completely covered with pictures of their latest stories. When The Weeks in Politics comes up on Sundays. The studio & the main desk when it uses the lighting & logo looks fantastic.
Overall Top of the Pops : Huw Edwards
