RTÉ Network 2 takes a look ahead to what’s to come on Sunday before closing down for the night.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME PROMOTION: a preview of programmes coming up on Network 2 on Sunday evening:
7pm Star Trek: The Next Generation. (Though it says 7.05pm on the menu graphic).
8pm News Headlines and Weatherline.
8.03pm Abbeys of Europe.
8.30pm Extraordinary People.
9pm Saturday Sport.
9.45pm U.S. Masters Golf.
[00:01:50] GRAPHIC: there’s overnight music and entertainment on offer on RTÉ 2FM, presented by Gerry Wilson.
[00:02:00] CLOCK: Network 2 is back on air from 9.10am with programmes for children. The latest hot videos, plus prizes and guests, with Ian Dempsey in The Beat Box at 11.30am.
The Head 2 Toe repeat is at 1.30pm. Music of a very different sort on Festival at 2pm, which this week features Richard Strauss’ opera Capriccio.
But for now, with the time at seventeen minute to two, it’s goodnight from director Jim Rochford and announcer Angie Mezetti.
Not sure whose idea it was to have all the hands on this clock almost the same length. Granted the hour hand is very slightly thicker but it was tricky to read sometimes.
[00:02:50] TEST CARD: colour/black and white chroma bars, accompanied by live sound of RTÉ 2FM.
