I only heard about Marian Finucane's death now. I am in shock. She was one of the most finest broadcasters to ever grace this island. I think the only TV programme that I remember her presenting when I very young was Crimeline which was the predecessor to Crimecall on RTÉ One. She presented it with David Harvey from it's launch year which was back in 1992.

There is a news report about the programme's launch here on the RTÉ Archive website.

RIP Marian Finucane. Sad

The Late Late Show had a longish tribute for Marian tonight with some her RTÉ colleagues talking about her career with Ryan Tubridy.

In other news. RTÉ Player has a new TV ad which suggests that it has nabbed some new Irish streaming rights of 2 american shows.

The new shows are called pen15 (Hulu original series) & The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (CBS).

There is also some more new RTÉ Player originals launching soon as well. There is one series in which I think is called The Angry OAP's. That is a show that comprises of three people sitting down in a studio setting talking about things that relate to them in Ireland.

RTÉ's version of Dancing with The Stars has gone a lot more blue in it's graphics with the title sequence being reworked to include blue, black & orange. The set has a number of lighting changes applied to it. It has a lot less gold upon the walls. But a lot more blue, silver & orange added to it. Also a big DWTS logo is featured on the back wall & on the studio floor. The actual construction of the set itself has not changed at all. It is still the same from previous years. The title music is also the same from previous years.

Does RTE still not feature a live band, which Strictly does here?
