An early evening RTÉ Network 2 junction.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME/IN-VISION CONTINUITY: the Network 2 continuity announcer has the night off and it’s been left to the brothers O’Leprosy to link together tonight’s shows on the channel, from the comfort of their home in Ballydung Manor.
Rodge is still annoyed at not getting a ticket for the Ballydung Millennium Party.
[00:00:39] PROGRAMME GRAPHIC: festive animated graphic, for Christmas Craic with Podge and Rodge.
[00:00:43] PROGRAMME PROMOTION: for Absolutely Abba.
The trail doesn’t feature any previews of the shows being broadcast on the special themed night but there’s a menu at the end:
9.35pm Abba – 25 Years on Abba Mania.
10.35pm Abba – Winner Takes It All.
11.35pm Bjorn Again Live at the Albert Hall.
12.35am Muriel’s Wedding.
2.30am The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
[00:01:16] PROGRAMME GRAPHIC: festive animated graphic, for Christmas Craic with Podge and Rodge.
[00:01:20] PROGRAMME/IN-VISION CONTINUITY: we return to Ballydung Manor where Podge tells us about the arrangements he’s put in place to stop Rodge enjoying the Ballydung Millennium Party fireworks display.
And what better way to lead into the next programme, than with a Paul Daniels/Debbie McGee joke.
