Listen to: They didn’t suit you

January 15, 2014 in Culture

They didn’t suit you, the radio documentary detailing my journey to last year’s European Quizzing Championships, aired last Saturday on RTÉ Radio One. If you didn’t hear it at the time, it will be repeated on Sunday next (January 19th) at 7pm on the same channel.

If that’s too analogue for you, fear not – you can listen by going to the show’s page on the RTÉ website: www.rte.ie/radio1/doconone/documentary-podcast-they-didnt-suit-you-quiz-table-john-nolan.html

Radio 1 documentary airs this weekend

Brendan Daly listens

Brendan Daly listens

Tune in to RTÉ Radio 1 this weekend (on Saturday at 2pm and/or Sunday at 7pm) to hear the voices of Ger Slattery, Mark Henry, Dan O’Malley, Andrew Newman, Lorraine Murphy, Ronnie Swiggers, Jane Allen and a host of other quizzing luminaries speak on quizzing and the European Quizzing Championships.

They Didn’t Suit You, is the name of a documentary recorded by Brendan Daly and produced by Ronan Kelly. Brendan tagged along with myself and the Irish quizzing team both before and during last November’s Euros in Liverpool.

The resulting programme will be (I think) about 45 minutes long and will air on Saturday, January 11th, at 2pm. It will be repeated eight days later at 7pm.
