RTÉ2 is broadcasting a landmark documentary tonight giving viewers an unprecedented, behind-the-scenes look at frontline policing in Dublin city centre.

The first episode airs tonight and hones in on the Gardaí’s efforts to tackle the problems associated with drugs and drug dealing in the city centre.

Suspiciously Timely, in fairness.


Other Voices returns for its 14th series on RTÉ2.

Fergus McCormack writes:

This year, Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1) and Fight Like Apes’ lead singer May Kay (Mary Kate Geraghty) will join music aficionado Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) on presenting duties.

Grammy nominee Glen Hansard will make a welcome return to the show and for the first time Mercury Prize nominee Gaz Coombes (Supergrass) will take to the stage in St. James’ Church [Dingle, Co kerry].

The new series also features a performance from the ever elusive Keaton Henson and Minnesota based slow-core innovators Low. Also from the US, Shakey Graves will take to the stage and a spellbinding performance from the wonderful Ane Brun is one not to be missed

As always, the IMRO Other Room will showcase five promising artists on the rise – Talos, HAWK, Bitch Falcon, Gavin Glass and Saint Sister. Viewer’s Choice Saramai will feature in an Other Voices Other Room special later in the year…
