Irreverent, relevant and passionate; Imeall Geal (Bright Edge ) is brand new in alternative late-night chat and entertainment! It will be fronted by two of Ulster’s brightest new presenting stars, Tomaí Ó Conghaile, (BBC Radio Ulster's Blas) and Gráinne McElwain (Budding TG4 talent) . They will steer an energetic and lively mix of interviewees, music and audience chat with sharp humour and insight. The show promises to be frank, funny, and unpredictable. Current TV that takes charge! The lively chat in Imeall Geal will be complemented with big Music acts playing live to a local intimate audience.


Imeall Geal  is offering a chance for young budding film makers and pranksters to show their 1 minute video blog, short film, comedy act, mini documentary, or rant on BBC2 NI as part of their programme.  

Shows will be recorded every Sunday afternoon in Newry between 6th Jan and 2nd March.  Free Tickets are available for the TV audience members.
