MONDAY 2ND MARCH

PROGRAMME ON THE DISAPPEARED
Tonight's Nationwide programme tells the story of the six families from the group, known as 'The Disappeared' who are still hoping that information will be provided to allow them locate the remains of their missing loved ones and lay them to rest on sacred ground. During the 1970's and 1980's republican paramilitaries abducted, killed and secretly buried sixteen people. Ten of those bodies have been recovered but six families are still hoping that the vital details will be provided to allow them bury their loved ones.

WEDNESDAY 4TH MARCH

KILKENNY FOOD PROGRAMME
On tonight's programme we have food on the menu. We visit County Kilkenny to find out all about the Kilkenny 'Town of Food' Initiative. Kilkenny is a county which is better known for its hurling and tourism than perhaps for its Cuisine but in recent times efforts have been made to brand and identify Kilkenny food, not just the producers but also the restaurants who prioritise the produce of the Marble city and County. We travel around Kilkenny meeting some of those producers including one living in the picturesque village of Inistioge.

BOOLE HISTORY/REPORT JENNIE O'SULLIVAN
Boole Library on UCC's campus is named after George Boole, one of the great unsung architects of today's hi-tech world. Without Boolean Algebra we wouldn't have the computer or even the smart phone. This year the College is marking the 200th anniversary of his birth with a series of events and reporter Jennie O'Sullivan has been finding out a little more about the shy genius, the college's first Professor of Mathematics, whose work changed our world.
