    Probably best to e-mail RTE and ask them if it was released for purchase on DVD?

    I am away from Boards until August 15th 2022. Please bear this in mind if you send me a private message during my absence.

    RTE have a service that you can buy a copy of programs they have broadcast as long as they own the copyright of the program, It is expensive about €100 per episode. Contact [email protected]

    I just emailed them myself for an old all ireland. Anyone know how long it takes to be sent out to you? I presume im being very optomistic to hope to have it for fathers day?

    Any chance if anyone has this they'd put it up online?

    Sorry to bump this but why are RTE asking me to log in to watch this 4 part drama series, what is this log in, where do you register to get through this. http://www.rte.ie/tv/prosperity/ This thread will probably get locked so can someone pm me details about how to watch this online.

    If you want to get into it, you got to get out of it. (Hawkwind 1982)

    Wow, I remember this. Really enjoyed all 4 episodes iirc. The distinct one in my head is the Nigerian cleaning lady one? Would like to relive these too.

    Sorry for digging up an old thread but has anyone had any luck finding this anywhere? I've been looking for a long time and can't seem to find a thing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,594 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Having the same experience trying to find this series.

    Not on DVD on Amazon or any TV sites I know of :(

    Maybe get in touch directly with Element Pictures - the company that made it.

    They'd be best able to tell you if it's possible to buy it anywhere.

    Incidentally do people realise that this was directed by the now Oscar nominated Lenny Abrahamson?

    was hoping rte would include it in their Lenny Abrahamsson season recently. Instead they showed the films they have had on repeatedly already (all excellent IMO). Real missed opportunity for RTE to show they backed an Oscar nominated director before he made his big breakthrough.

    I do. That's exactly why I wanted to see this series.

    He made Adam and Paul and then Garage which were mind blowing!

    He made them with the work of writer Mark O'Halloran. The last thing the two worked on was this TV Series!

    One knows how to write Ireland, the other knows how to direct Ireland.

    Need to see!

    fairly annoying this isnt available. someone owns the copyright and just holding it in a vault. few other things that appeared TG4 that they dont own the copyright.

    IFI may reshow it next time they have another lenny abrahmson series.
