What is the deal with the show Crimecall on RTE ONE ? Has anybody ever been brought to justice as a result of a tip off from somebody who called the show?
This returns to RTE on Tuesday, 23 October 2012 at 10:15pm
Crimewatch on the BBC have an update on their programme later on the evening that it's broadcast.
They also occasionally have a "Crimewatch: Solved" programme about successful outcomes of the programme.
Perhaps it's about time for RTE to have a similar programme.
Eh it started back last night or Monday, not October!!
Apologies I misread their webpage
I've just had a look at said webpage.
Well, the folks at Montrose are right about this series being the ninth - the show's predecessor, Crimeline, finishing in 2004.
So I'm guessing they just took what they said at the start of the eighth series last year, and replaced the word "eighth" with "ninth" - without bothering to correspondingly replace the word "seven" with "eight".
Yes, he presented the first series in 2004/5 alongside Brenda Power.
Anne Cassin and Con Murphy have arguably been the best presenters thus far, even if Con was no less peculiar a choice than Daithi.
I guess they just wanted a fresh approach.
Would I be right in thinking that RTE produced Crimeline themselves (whereas Crimecall is produced for them by Coco Television)?
I remember David Harvey and Marian Finucane presenting the first crimeline shows back in the 90,s.
What was with all the effing and blinding on the show the other night? It was as if Oliver Stone was directing the reconstructions. If it was an attempt by the programme makers to be "edgy" it was all a bit pathetic.
