Have only seen threads on this in reference to certain years and not the actual program itself.

Watching the 93 one tonight. Never knew that In Your Eyes song was our Eurovision one.

RTE have plenty of faults (Fair City,The English Class,The Last Furlong,telly bingo hosted by a transvestite, Pat Kenny,Miriam etc etc) but this program certainly isn't one of them.

Apart from having the nostalgic look at the past that you experienced, the various songs from the particular year always suit the mood of an event from that year. Phil Collins In The Air Tonight from 81 when the hunger strikes footage appeared / that Bjork (I think it's her) song when there was a rebellion in Moscow in 93 (which was on tonight) completely enhances the importance of the event.

Whoever does the text to the events on the program is very good and the choice of the music to the particular event is excellent and spot on.

A fantastic piece of television which I could watch again and again.

I think it is the one fella puts the majority of it together, John O'Regan is the chap's name, or at least, he is the main man, aided by whatever amount of researchers. Here's an interview with him in the IT from a few years ago explaining how tis put together. 

http://www.irishtimes.com/culture/tv-radio-web/it-s-impossible-now-to-view-the-decade-past-without-regret-1.661839" rel="nofollow - http://www.irishtimes.com/culture/tv-radio-web/it-s-impossible-now-to-view-the-decade-past-without-regret-1.661839

He is a bit modest about his talents there though, I think his true genius is in selecting the music for the relevant footage. It also appears from those choices that Mr O'Regan has a bit of a wry sense of humour, which always helps. 

Using REM's 'Shiny Happy People' over footage of Ian Paisley roaring 'NO' to something or other always makes me laugh (not sure on the year, maybe '91),  The Wonderstuff's 'Size of a Cow' over footage of Larry Goodman & the Beef Tribunal is absolute comedy gold. How long did it take to find that one pretty obscure song, just to use in a clip of a few seconds ???  Coming up with stuff like that isn't easy, in fact half the time people don't even recognise the fact that the lyrics in the music clips are linked to the footage, that's how good these fellas are.

Brilliant programme. As Deise mentioned the music mixed in with the wry comedy make it what it is. Tonights episode alone finishing with Bertie commenting on locking up all tax cheats and dodgers was gold. Straight away all I could think of was Paddy the Plasterer and dig outs from pals!

Nailed it Deise. The soundtrack to every episode is damn near perfect. Every time, it just works. From happy memories, to controversial moments, and some very sad, poignant ones. A couple even without music, which makes a huge impact. 

Such a simple programme. But so perfect

Its mad to look back even as recently as the early 90s and see some of the crooks that were running the country and just how male dominated politics was in this country.
You look at the likes of Mary Robinson and think what a trail blazer she was.
Its also gas that on every episode there`s a priest caught for knocking off some bit on the side in some far flung country.

2015

Reeling In The Nineties is discovered, just 15 years after it's original broadcast.

August is Prime Time for the show every year with 5 shows per week, to cover RTE's reduced news coverage. Despite it being their own production, it is the only show banned on RTE One+1, apparantly for "rights" issues.

It isn't all comedy and entertainment however. The coverage of the troubles that are featured can be difficult to watch during the 80's episodes, and I personally find the footage of the riot at the RDS in 81 too distressing to watch again. 200 people were injured that afternoon, just three months after the brits won the Eurovision there. Ann Doyle would say it was her worst year in RTE, given all that happened.

I would also prefer the FAI Cup Final own each year rather than the finals of the amateur, backward, parochial game dressed up as "sport" instead.

That aside, it is RTE's most popular programme and rightly so.

Why is it banned on the one hour later show and not the regular hour? I must be thick. I don't get it.
 
Is this the reason why RTÉ +1 only goes out after 7pm and has a clocked finishing time too?

I understand why DVD's are restricted to Irl and NI only. But I don't understand the music issue. RTE has music on almost every single tv programme, plays the songs featured on radio, yet won't air them on their own production on RTE One +1.

Eastenders used to be banned too, but that was lifted after a while. Movies are shown on the station, with all their music included. I just don't get what the issue with RITY is.

Difference between broadcasting live and a podcast in radio so I am guessing tv is the same.   

You can play a song on the radio but you can only play a 30 seconds of it on a podcast.   Tv must be the same.

Yes we have said this before - The Rock and Roll Years on BBC2.
 
Think it went from 1955 (Bill Haley etc) up to 1969.

t'was a bit of a classic alright. TO be fair it was $1.60 to the Euro at the time, I wnet to the states in early 2008 and loved being there and having everything so cheap.

It was a great year for Reeling in the Years, so many quotes from David Drumm, Sean Fitzpatrick, Bertie, Cowen, etc that aged very badly

Not a great episode though. 1999 or 2001 are one of my favourites. Obviously they take you back to the year and make you reminisce what you did yourself, nothing exciting for me in 07.

The good old days of "when I have it, I'll spend it". And remember the 3 grand new home buyers grant....I bought my house in 2001, the inspector came to the house, had a 5 minute look around, passed the house for the grant. I jokingly said "that'll pay for the world cup". The inspector gave me the death stare. f**k I thought. Then the inspector smiled and said that his son was doing the same. And then there was the SSIAs....remember some lefty politicians being ridiculed for having the temerity to try and spoil the party by suggesting that the government should invest some of the surplus in hospitals and education.

Blagged a lift with Ray Treacys bus. Pit stop at a couple of small bars up the mountain then onto the ‘stadium’. I stashed a bag of cans outside fearing they'd be taken off me. Hopped the waist high fence at the back of the stand at half time and retrieved them for the second half, and badly needed they were.

Jesus, Murphy's, we've seen a lot worse. Should have beaten Slovakia only for the customary late slip and were right in the game v the Czechs until Hunt got himself sent off.

But yes, the drink was flowing. Fans bus from Bratislava was a ride of death for me, had to get the bus to stop en route to compose myself...

Is this the reason why RTÉ +1 only goes out after 7pm and has a clocked finishing time too?

It's now a 24hr channel, and the show is repeated as all the others are. 

Better late than ever, five years to get an answer LOL

A lot of things on last nights episode which I didn't think was as far back as 2012, the Concordia and the Baumgartner jump for example I thought they were around 2016/17

After Austria away in 2013, a bright eyed young aristocrat Trap Junior Esquire IV went to Salzburg for a few days R&R and got to see that yoke he jumped out of as Red Bull had some hangar there at the airport with all their stuff in it.
