Our clip includes an afternoon RTÉ One junction.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME: John Finnerty presents an afternoon news update. Unfortunately, we don’t have the opening portion of the bulletin.
This is a CSO set-up, showing blurred imagery of the monitor stack in the Studio 3 gallery.
[00:00:54] IDENT: a silent version of the RTÉ One ident is used to link into an episode of Sons and Daughters.
The announcer initially references “Two” rather than “One” – momentarily forgetting which channel he is on. It was quite common for announcers to have shifts on both channels.
