Welcome to My World, Friday 7.30pm on RTE

"New series of the programme which features immigrants to Ireland inviting an Irish friend to their homeland to contrast the two cultures.

February 26th marks the return of Welcome To My World. Nominated for an IFTA in 2009 as Best Factual programme, the second series features more travel, culture and entertainment.

The premise of this four-part travel series is that immigrants invite an Irish friend, family member or colleague to accompany them on a visit to their homeland. The roots and relationships that they have established in Ireland will be literally road-tested as the travelers discover what they now hold in common and what they will always have apart.

Welcome To My World offers viewers an entertaining journey to an exotic destination, narrated by two very different accents and informed by two very different perspectives.
