RTÉ CLÁRACHA GAEILGE EDUCATION & SCIENCE

COMMISSIONING BRIEF


UPDATED: 9th July 2015

RTÉ ag fáiltiú roimh aighneachtaí maidir le cláir ar TG4 in 2016 faoin gcatagóir

"Cláracha Gaeilge Oideachas/Eolaíocht - Sraith Siamsaíochta"

Tá RTÉ ag lorg tograí maidir le sraith siamsaíochta réamhthaifeadta stiúideo-bhunaithe i nGaeilge. Is ar TG4 a chraolfar na cláracha agus tá sé i gceist na sraitheanna a chraoladh le linn bhuaicam an sceidil ar an deireadh seachtaine.

Am sa Sceideal: TG4, Dé Domhnaigh 20:30
Líon Clár: 26
Fad Cláir: 50 nóiméad
Buiséad: Suas go dtí €32,000 ar a mhéid in aghaidh na huaire (€832k Iomlán)

Déanann TG4 freastal ar a phríomhlucht féachana tráthnóna Dé Domhnaigh ar am é don teaghlach ar fad. Am tábhachtach é i sceideal TG4 agus ní mór ábhar a bheith tarraingteach do thuismitheoirí agus do leanaí agus iad ar a sáimhín só tráthnóna Dé Domhnaigh. Ba chóir gur ábhar a mbeadh súil ag an teaghlach ar fad breathnú air san oíche Dé Domhnaigh a chuirfí chun cinn.

Táimid ag lorg smaointe nua do shraith siamsaíochta teaghlaigh stiúideo-bhunaithe a d'fheilfeadh an t-am seo sa sceideal agus a d'fhéadfaí a thaifeadadh os comhair lucht féachana sa stiúideo. Cad is ábhar siamsaíochta ann ag leanaí agus daoine fásta in Éirinn in 2016 agus a bhféadfaí seó láidir sainiúil a dhéanamh as agus é a thabhairt ar ais arís agus arís eile? D'fhéadfadh sé gur seó réalaíoch, tallainne nó comórtais a bheadh ann ach gur chóir meascán gnéithe a bheith i gceist - greann, ceol, comórtas, contúirt, teannas agus teicneolaíocht.

Is mian linn coimisiúnú a dhéanamh ar 2-3 shraith a mbeadh 26 clár i ngach sraith díobh le craoladh ag an am seo in Earrach agus i bhFómhar 2016. Tabhair ar aird go gcuirfear suntas ar leith in aon sraith a léireofar ar bhealach costas-éifeachtach agus a mbeadh costas níos ísle in aghaidh na huaire ag baint léi.

Ba chóir go n-ainmneofaí láithreoir/tallann nua cumasach do shraitheanna dá leithéid in aon smaointe a chuirfí chun cinn.

Iarraimid ar léiritheoirí a gcuid smaointe a chur ar aghaidh ar dtús ar an gcóras ríomhchoimisiúnaithe:
https://e-commissioning.rte.ie/SWIFT.Web/skins/rte/login.aspx
faoin gcatagóir "Cláracha Gaeilge Oideachas/Eolaíocht - Sraith Siamsaíochta"

An 12.00 an 14ú Lúnasa, 2015 an dáta deiridh a nglacfaidh RTÉ le haighneachtaí.

RTÉ invites submissions for TG4 programming, 2016, under the category

"Cláracha Gaeilge Education/Science - Entertainment Series"

RTÉ is seeking proposals for pre-recorded studio-based entertainment series in the Irish Language. These series are intended to play in the prime-time schedule at weekends and the programmes will be broadcast on TG4.

Transmission Slot: TG4, Sunday 20:30
No. of Episodes: 26
Programme Duration: 50 minutes
Budget: To a maximum of €32,000 per hour (Total €832k)

Sunday evening on TG4 focuses on it's core audience and is traditional family viewing time. It's a key slot in the TG4 schedule and needs to engage and entertain both parents and children as they relax on Sunday evenings. Series proposed for this slot should be 'appointment to view' for families on Sunday nights.

We are looking for new ideas for studio-based family entertainment series that could work in this slot and be shot in front of studio audiences. What entertains children and adults in Ireland in 2016 and can deliver a strong, returnable show with a recognisable brand ? It could be a reality, talent, panel or competition based show but should incorporate a mix of elements such as humour, music, competition, jeopardy, interactivity, tension and technology.

We would like to commission 2-3 series totalling 26 episodes for this slot to be broadcast in the Spring and Autumn of 2016. Please note that series produced in a cost-effective manner and that can achieve a lower cost per hour will be particularly attractive.

Strong new presenter/on-screen talent for such series should be key to any ideas pitched as part of this call for ideas.

We ask, in the first instance, that producers submit ideas into the eCommissioning system:
https://e-commissioning.rte.ie/SWIFT.Web/skins/rte/login.aspx
under the programme category "Cláracha Gaeilge Education/Science - Entertainment Series"

The closing date for receipt of submissions by RTÉ is 12.00 on August 14th, 2015.

COMMISSIONING BRIEF

Commissioning Editor - Colm O'Callaghan

Executive Producer - Kevin Cummins

UPDATED: 02th June 2015

Call for Science Proposals, May 2015

Among the recent stand-outs on the RTÉ Science slate have been one-off popular documentaries like 'Joe Brolly - Perfect Match', 'Power In The Blood', 'Unbreakable - The Mark Pollock Story' and 'Tommy Bowe's Bodycheck', as well as the multi-part series 'Building Ireland'.

Science Foundation Ireland has outlined its goal to enable an engaged and scientifically informed Irish public. Recognising the potential of broadcast programmes to reach wide audiences, S.F.I. is keen to work with RTÉ in supporting projects that have general appeal and that are subtly related to science, technology and engineering. These projects should engage people through real stories that relate science, engineering or technology elements and that have broad appeal.

As part of a new initiative launched by RTÉ and Science Foundation Ireland, we are now seeking proposals that have strong science themes at heart, dealing especially in the areas of technology, engineering and maths. In this instance we are looking for strong, one-off or multi-part documentary projects.

We are also looking for one large-scale, science-based event project to play on RTÉ One during the early months of 2016.
All proposals should be suitable for transmission in the prime-time schedules on RTÉ One and should have strong, popular appeal, as well as being relevant to Irish audiences. Proposals can be authored or presenter led but we are not seeking personal profiles or science history pieces.

Proposals for the large-scale, event-based science and technology related project will, in the first instance, be supported in the BAI Sound And Vision round in July, 2015. This project, if successful through Sound And Vision, should ideally be ready to play across a given week in the RTÉ One schedules in the first half of 2016.

Proposals should, in all instances, reflect the contribution of science, technology, engineering and maths in contemporary Irish society through, for agricultural, human behaviour, natural history, wildlife, health, sport or environmental dimensions. These proposals should be far-reaching in their ambition, with the potential to be stripped across the RTÉ One schedules, feature live components and be multi-camera studio or location based.

Proposals are encouraged to broaden their reach and educational impact through supporting digital accompaniments such as websites, apps, social media for example.

Budgets for the documentary projects [which can be one-offs or multi-part] will be costed at a maximum of €130,000. Budgets for the large-scale science-based event will be costed at a maximum of €750,000, with the RTÉ/Science Foundation Ireland contribution at c. €350,000.

Please note that budget ranges are indicative only and proposals that can achieve lower costs per hour will be particularly attractive. In the first instance, producers submit ideas into the RTÉ eCommissioning system
https://e-commissioning.rte.ie/SWIFT.Web/skins/rte/login.aspx - under the programme category Cláracha Gaeilge Education & Science "Science". The closing date for submissions is Friday, June 19th at 5PM. (Strict Deadline)

**********************************************

Please note:

The discussion of, or initial interest in, a proposal does not represent a commitment to commission by RTÉ and should not be understood as such. Commissioning decisions will reflect the quality of propoals received and the scheduling priorities operating at the time. RTÉ's financial position will also be a factor.

Any proposals previously submitted to RTÉ in categories listed here, and which were rejected on a first reading in a previous Round, should not be re-submitted and will not be reconsidered.
