RTÉ News Factual Call for Ideas
10 Jan 2017 : Laura Brennan
Economist David McWilliams on 'The Great Wealth Divide' Production Company Animo TV
RTÉ have issued a call for ideas for the Autumn of 2017 on the subject of class. This September, RTÉ Factual wants to kick-start a national conversation on class with a season of programmes on RTÉ One.

They are looking for a range of programme ideas, from authored one-offs (1x52” – think 'The Great Wealth Divide') to formatted factual series (up to 3x52) that explore the issue.

Ireland has often been referred to as a relatively classless society, but is that true? Are there distinct classes to which we all belong? What are they? Are they demarcated by an income bracket or a mindset? Are our lives defined by the class into which we're born? Are our futures dictated by where we're born? Is social mobility a thing in Ireland? Is there a new aristocracy in Ireland? Who are they? Are class and inequality the same thing?

RTÉ are open to any idea that's both provocative and informative and which would rate on a Monday at 9:35pm. They are not looking for dry histories.

All ideas that are achievable within the timeframe will be considered. Budget range is €120,000 - €135,000 per hour.

These are the specifications:

Target Slot: Autumn 2017, Monday, 9.35pm. 

Cost:120-135k per episode 

Deadline:Monday 20th February 2017 at 12 noon, strict deadline.

For more information on submitting ideas please visit the RTÉ Commissioning website www.rte.ie/commissioning.
