Yeah I saw this too. Was a very pleasant surprise. Perhaps they have ears after all! Do you know when they are going to show part 2?

Relatively brave move by Rte. Showed at 7pm prime time too. Cue torrent of letters of protest to Indo
Emm....would anyone like to see my monkey impression?

Perhaps there should also be a torrent of emails and letters to the indo in support.

I would have given you a heads up except I didn't know it was going to be on. I just happened to be watching RTE2 last night at the right time.

I'm glad to see this has made it to mainstream Irish TV.

I own the dvds so I've seen it already, but if you've missed any of it you can watch here:

On Google Video

Some of the interviews are available to view uncut (no editing, so sound and visual is not always perfect; but fascinating to see the bits that didn't make it to the final show)
With Alister McGrath
With Bishop Harris (I really warmed to him, nice man)

If you'd like to own them:
