Now That’s What You Called News 2010 #ntwycn10
Interview with #ntwycn10 Producer Pat O’Mahony
Presented by Craig Doyle, Now That’s What You Called News 2010 is a revealing overview of what news we as a nation searched for online throughout 2010 in the privacy of our own homes, on our own laptops, on our own smartphones.
The news we search for online is very different from the news we consume on TV and radio and in newspapers and magazines. Not only do we want to know about different things, but we also want to know a whole variety of other stuff about the stories the traditional media deem important.
Featuring an entertaining and interesting mix of both the serious and the less so, it explores the big internet stories of the year, be they about celebrity, politics, sport, business, health, natural disasters, entertainment or whatever.
These stories vary from a billion-plus viewed YouTube clip to multi-billion Euro bailouts, from celebrity affairs to political leadership heaves, from ash-laden travel chaos to a jubilant mining rescue.
With contributions from such well known newshounds and commentators as Bryan Dobson, George Hook, Claire Byrne, Mark Little, Rick O’Shea, Jacqui Hurley, Frank Fitzgibbon, Shane Coleman, Dearbhail McDonald and Jennifer O’Connell, it’s a sharp, witty, intelligent, fun-filled look back at 2010. The programme is also produced by our very own Pat O’Mahony.
Watch it RTE 1 on New Year’s Eve at 10.10pm.
According to Pat:
And it already has a hashtag – #ntwycn10 – and will I think be the first ever RTE programme to feature one in its opening sequence so everyone watching will use the same one…that’s the plan anyway
