RTÉ Television and Independent Commissions

Welcome to RTÉ's commissioning website

RTÉ works in partnership with independent producers to create many of Ireland's favourite television programmes.

As programme-makers, we work together in one of the most competitive broadcasting environments in the world - nearly nine in ten Irish homes are multi-channel. We compete for viewers against some of the world's largest commercial broadcasters and the world's best-funded public service broadcaster.

Our schedules are built on original Irish content, and we need your ideas and production skill to produce the shows that our audiences want to watch. For more information please click here. More...

Francis Brennan's Grand Indian Tour, RTÉ One


Francis Brennan, star of RTÉ's At Your Service, is Ireland's best-known hotelier. He's also a man with a serious passion for travel.

This summer he's putting his 5 star day job on hold and taking 12 paying guests on a surprise trip of a lifetime - to India!

Francis has planned a 1000km round trip of India's Golden Triangle - beginning in the capital city Delhi, then onto Agra, home of the majestic Taj Mahal. From there the group travels onto the 'Pink City' of Jaipur, followed by a tiger safari in Ranthambhore National Park.

With temperatures hitting a record breaking 51 degrees the heat is on for Francis. Can he stay cool as he deals with fistfuls of facts and figures and a jam-packed 24/7 schedule that leaves no room for error? Not to mention the threat of Delhi belly!

Transmission: Sundays @ 20.30 on RTÉ One - starting on 17th July

Genre: Lifestyle
