Finding Joy
RTE ONE,

2018

| Comedy
Rating: 3/5

Joy is perfectly happy with her life. It's neat and tidy and just how she likes it. Sure, her long-term boyfriend, Aidan, has left her, but Joy is fine with it. She's certainly not suffering from heartbreak and stress-induced incontinence like canine Aidan. Things are totally fine the way they are - That is until Joy unwittingly lands herself a new job filling in for Ireland's most-beloved vlogger, Flora the Happy Hunter. This unwanted promotion throws Joy firmly out of her OCD level of control and forces her to deal with a world she has put great effort into avoiding; one full of oversharing, boundary breaking, messy housemates, one-night stands, and full-contact wrestling; all in the name of learning about the crazy, uncomfortable and new-age methods people use to find - well joy.


The Shelbourne

At the exclusive five star Shelbourne Hotel, the prevailing ethos is about attention to detail. Whether it's a demanding bride, an international celebrity, a head of state or the entire Irish Rugby team, the staff are trained to please with panache and a smile. Now, for the first time, the exclusive 190 year-old Dublin institution has allowed cameras access to the front and back of house. The series captures what it takes to deliver five star service to some of the worlds most demanding clientele. Staff at all levels - including VIP managers, concierges, doormen, executive chefs, florists and cleaning staff - are followed by RT? cameras as they deal with crises, prepare for grand events and gear up for the arrival of celebrity guests and world leaders. The result is an insightful, entertaining and sometimes hilarious six-part observational documentary series that reveals the skills and hard graft that go into the making of a five star luxury hotel experience.

Lords and Ladles

Lords & Ladles takes the viewer on a historical journey to celebrate our past through the wonders of food and the glories of cooking. The series features three of Ireland's finest Chefs: Derry Clarke, Catherine Fulvio and Paul Flynn who are as oddly complimentary as the Top Gear trio, with egos to match. Each week the Chefs arrive at a Great Irish Country House and must recreate a grand dinner from its history while tantalising the TV audience with sumptuous descriptions of the treats that are on the menu. But first they must Draw Lots for the division of labour - one will Gather the ingredients, one will Cook, and one will get to Dine with the Gentry. The Gatherer must source the ingredients for the feast from the local environs - hunting, shooting and fishing feature strongly, as do cow's lips and eyes, lamb's stones and lots of tongue! The Cook will familiarise themselves with the workings or not of the kitchen, check out the original house cookbooks - some fine old tomes filled with mouth-watering recipes from the past - Birr Castle boasts a cook book dating from 1666. Meanwhile the Diner gets to explore the house with its owners and caretakers, learning about its place in the history of the area and the Island, the trials and tribulations of the family seat and of course help lay the table using the finest silver and china from the house safe. The Cook's work all done, the meal will be served with all the pomp and ceremony it deserves, to the audible delight of the diners who can't help themselves from gasping at the spectacle as the sumptuous banquet is laid before them.
