Got it woking on iPad now.

Got it working on Apple TV by this time of course is showing the news. It worked for a few seconds then randomly cut to the commercial break holding slide. Then I couldn’t get it to play the second time.

I imagine it’s a load of tommyrot if recent UK efforts are to go by.

Good to see Zig & Zag for the first time in quite some time since especially they were on The Big Breakfast.

A real nostalgia fest for kids of the late 1980s/early 90s. Afternoons 3-6 meant the Den in those days.

I quite enjoyed the Derry Girls/Saoirse Ronan sketch though.

That's the only bit which made me start this thread. Hopefully a clip will be up soon enough.

Interestingly the Normal People sketch (with Andrew Scott!) had end credits and appeared to have been made by the producers of the show, rather than just being the two leads participating in the night.

(Edit: I’ve never seen the latter, but apparently a crossover with Fleabag)

More nostalgia with The Panel mockumentary. (The show actually did run for four more years after Dara O’Briain left).

I was an avid viewer of the Panel when RTE2 Monday nights were brilliant with comedy such as Friends, The Panel, Podge & Rodge, Anonymous, Father Ted etc. and Neil Delamere & Colin Murphy guest hosted firstly when Dara was unavailable working on Mock the Week etc when that first started overlapping with the start of the Blame Game on BBC Northern Ireland then both hosted a couple of series before it moved to RTE One which made me stop watch the show also the appointment of David McWilliams as host and never really watched when Craig Doyle took over.

More nostalgia with Paths to Freedom now, with the show now running nearly 15 minutes over. With more commercials it looks like it’s going to run well past it’s 11:50pm scheduled end time.
