Our clip includes the 4pm and 4.03pm RTÉ One junctions.
[00:00:00] PROGRAMME PROMOTION: for Up and Running.
The programme airs on Monday at 7pm on RTÉ One.
[00:00:29] CLOCK: the announcer tells us about two films coming up today: Police Academy at 9.30pm and later, Goin’ South, directed by and starring Jack Nicholson.
[00:00:48] PROGRAMME: Ken Hammond presents the 4pm RTÉ News.
The bulletin includes reports from Brendan Wright, Póilín Ní Chiaráin and Una Claffey.
The closing credit graphic uses a font that’s not in line with the RTÉ News branding of the period.
[00:03:37] IDENT: a full screen slide version of the RTÉ Network 2 ident was used to trail coverage of the French Open, currently showing on the channel (Network 2 didn’t create slides for each programme during this era, so use of the ident on RTÉ One was normal). It’s the semi-final match between Andre Agassi (pronounced incorrectly by the announcer) and Boris Becker.
[00:03:44] IDENT: the slide version of the RTÉ One ident is used to link into Sons and Daughters.
