I heard Monday's programme was very good. Must look out for it on the RTE player.

Never heard of 'Strumpet City', but if you're classing it in the same terms as those two genius shows then I'm interested!
 
This is on tonight I take it? Might throw it on serieslink. McSavage can be a bit hit and miss alright, but well worth a watch.

Very funny show, really on the censorship edge though.

That bit about snatching the kid on the Luas was fookin weird, surprised they were allowed to show it, aswell as the 6yrs smashed on heroin!!...mental

Never forget the night I saw him in the International and a joke of his that contained suicide was commented upon but an audience member in the front row. McSavage challenged the guy in the front row and the guy revealed that his brother had committed suicide.  Mc Savage did not bat an eyelid and challenged him further and it was a very interesting and uncomfortable for many in the audience that night.

Still have not made up my mind  on who was at fault there.

Strumpet City was absolute class, I rememeber watching it as a kid and loving it, was looking for the DVD for ages and finally found it a couple of years ago. It's still class, even my bird who is Engilsh and doesn't really understand the backround (Larkin, Connolly, the Lockout etc) loved it.
 
It's well worth picking up the DVD as for some reason RTE have not repeated it since the 1980s.
 
The book is worth a read too.

The reason they have not repeated it is because at the time the actors and producers etc drew up a contract that they got paid a decent amount of money any time it is shown again.  As a result it would not pay RTE to air it again.

I thought it might be something to do with repeat payments. Maybe when Peter O'Toole, Bryan Murray and David Kelly die they'll show it again.
