- Extended description
One month prior to Telifís na Gaeilge going on air, details of a selection of programming for the channel have been announced. Over 40 production companies have been involved in providing the material.
Anne Marie Smyth reports from a preview of programming that will be on offer at the station. The channel will offer childrens, youth, quiz and music programmes. The channel is hoping to attract a young audience through a variety of programming.
Sinead Chamhnach, presenter, describes the programming as modern and says TnaG is something to watch out for. There will also be a daily soap and specially commissioned drama.
While programmes will be broadcast in Irish, English subtitles will be available to bring the channel to a wider audience. Cathal Goan talks about the availability of the channel and notes that some people may have to invest in an aerial to pick up TnaG. The channel is confident that everything is in place for a successful launch.
Bunaíodh Teilifís na Gaeilge, stáisiún Gaelach faoi scáth reachtúil RTÉ, ar Oíche Shamhna, 1997. TG4 an t-ainm atá ar an stáisiún anois (féach www.tg4.ie). Is foilsitheoir/craoltóir í TG4: déanann an stáisiún a cuid clár a fhoinsiú ó chomhlachtaí léirithe neamhspleácha agus ó RTÉ. Faigheann TG4 soláthar clár 365 uair an chloig sa mbliain ó RTÉ, ar neamhchostas do TG4.
TnaG, RTÉ's sister Irish language channel, was set up under the statutory umbrella of RTÉ. The station later changed its name to TG4. It is a publisher/broadcaster which means that it commissions programmes from the independent production sector. RTÉ supplies TG4 with 365 hours of programmes annually, at no cost.
Telifís na Gaeilge (TnaG) later became TG4
