The Consumer Show

The Consumer Show returns for a brand new 10-part series on Wednesday, March 4th at 8.30pm on RTÉ One. Presented by Keelin Shanley, with reporters Tadhg Enright and Ella McSweeney, the team will fight for consumer rights, look at the issues that hit your pocket and investigate your complaints.

This season Tadhg Enright compares property rental rights in Ireland to those on the Continent, meets mobile phone users suffering from battery anxiety and finds out how Irish researchers are working on a remedy. Baffling charges for mysterious texts and the perils of buying a second hand car will also be investigated.

Joining the team this year, Ella McSweeney reveals the issue that's costing our health service more than ¤20 million a year, and a lot of it is down to our love of chicken. It's been called the poultry industry's dirty secret, why the levels of bacteria are still so high on our supermarket shelves. Ella also shows you what to look out for when buying a puppy and investigates the rise of food intolerances, fact or fad?

Through-out the series the team will also give tips on how to save money and shop smart, explain the best time of year to buy certain products, show how to save money on your car and will help guide you through the complicated world of gifting cash to your children...
