Documentary on One

Running at about forty minutes every week, the Documentary on One is the biggest arena in Ireland to which listeners can tune in to hear radio documentaries.

The 'Documentary on One' unit is currently the most successful radio department in the world - having collected over 200 national and international awards since 2008. Aside from it's radio broadcasts, Documentary On One is also one of the most popular Irish podcasts.

Their website, which has the most popular online presence of any programme strand across all of RTÉ Radio, now contains over 1,500 documentaries - easily the largest free online archive anywhere in the world.

Documentary on One productions are radio stories about real life.

It's all about ideas, life, events, experiences, perspectives but most importantly - stories.

Our fare is pretty eclectic and covers a diverse range of topics including life, sport, music, fun, family, health, politics, challenge, death and much much more.

The Documentary on One explores mostly Irish stories about mostly Irish people and events.

We're a relatively small team but we work closely together.

We work with people of no radio experience making their first documentary to people with vast radio experience making their 'last' documentary.

We mentor all our documentaries - i.e. one of the team will work directly with you in formulating your idea into a radio documentary, helping you with interviewing/recording/editing and structuring your documentary. We have found that the mentoring process keeps standards of the documentaries on an even if not upward keel.

We are always looking to present old and new stories in new ways.

We look forward to hearing from you
