First the Gaeltacht - next stop Hollywood!

This column is the first to admit that we got it spectacularly wrong when it came to TG4.

We had initially assumed it would become a ridiculous waste of licence-payers' money simply to keep a bunch of militant Gaeilgoiri happy.

But, we're happy to say, TG4 has become arguably Ireland's finest - and certainly most challenging - channel, so it's only fitting that its longest-running domestic production, Ros na Run, has been bought by an American television company.

WYBE Philadelphia, an independent public television station broadcasting to the greater Philadelphia region, has purchased the show and will begin broadcasting it shortly to its potential audience of 2.9 million households. Ros na Run is a soap, Jim, but not as we know it.

Apart from the fact that the female cast are as easy on the eye as anything you might expect from an American eye-candyfest, the acting is top notch, the direction is innovative and the plots are, frankly, so deranged that you couldn't help but fall in love with the show.

From the earliest episodes, when they portrayed a co-habiting gay couple with a maturity and matter-of-factness that has still not been mastered by their English rivals, there was always something impressively cocky about the programme, and that swagger has continued unrelentingly.

At the moment, viewers have been riveted by the storyline which involves a disabled woman paying another woman to have sex with her husband, the aftermath of a murder/suicide, the fact that someone is spiking the local water as well as the usual brand of heroic madness which characterises life in the weirdest village in Ireland.

Given the fact that we are periodically terrified by rumours that The Lyrics Board is being sold to other countries, further lowering our international reputation, it's genuinely cheering to see a great Irish programme get regular international exposure.

Although what the fourth generation Paddys will make of all the sex and language and violence in the auld sod is anyone's guess.

Good news I'm sure for the TG4 finances and it would be fantastic if it were to remain a Irish language show.. However, the more successful the show becomes as an English language show the more it will undermine the original.. So in truth, this is terrible news!!

It's not clear whether they intend to dub it, or just broadcast it with subtitles. Considering they also broadcast Ballykissangel....Ros na Rún has to be an improvement.

I may have jumped the gun a bit :)- If they are just adding subtitles this indeed would be great news.

A chairde,
It appears from the WYBE website that they started broadcasting the programme on 9 January 2005. So if there is anyone in the Philadelphia area reading this, they might already know if it is being shown with subtitles or dubbed into English.
Le meas,
Chris

According to a message I got from Máire in Philly it IS being broadcast in Irish with subtitles. The story line there is behind what's being broadcast in Ireland, though, so don't talk too much about what's happened, folks!

RnaG i ndiaidh a rá gur mar sin é. Fotheidil Bhéarla agus gur in ionad B.kissAl. a bheas sé.

Is maith an scéala é.

agus, by the way -- is ? generation paddy returned to the sod é duine dona scríbhneoirí Ros na Rún, go bhfios dom . . . MY guess is that the dedicated Gaeilgoiri in Philly will be well able to handle it!

Is maith ann na Páidíní sinsir a Chailín na Bábóige. Casadh dom fear díobh seo ar maidin. Thosaigh sé ag foghlaim Gaeilge bliain go leith ó shin agus ní bhíonn aon stró air labhairt i nGaeilg. Is maith ann iad na Páidíní seo agus is fearr iad ná cuid mhaith mhór eile in aice baile.

B'fhéidir gur chineál lagamhrais ar fhear a threabh an fharraige aniar seachas Treabhar Ó Clochartaigh a threabh anoir, a bhí i gceist ag C.doll a Aonghuis.

A chairde,
To those of you who subscribe to the TG4 web-based tv programs, are those shows viewable full-screen, or just a little portion of the full screen?
I'm thinking of subscribing.
Go raibh maith agaibh.
Paul

A chara a Paul,

I subscribe to web-based TG4 and it's just a little portion of the full screen. If you try it as full screen the image is fuzzy, and so the women actors don't look as pretty as they really are. I live in New Jersey, about 10 miles north of the Philly access channels, so I'm looking forward to when the show becomes available in North Jersey.

So you see, Diarmo, it's not about the sex, language and violence or the challenging plot in the end, it's all about the eye candy! N'fheadair cén cuma atá ar na male actors on full screen a Dháithí?

I am a new addict of this show. I was so glad to find this website. I love the characters, the story line and the fact that I am learning some new words in another language!!
