Minister Naughten Launches TG4 News & Current Affairs Archives
24 Jan 2018 : Nathan Griffin
TG4 have today launched a News & Current Affairs archive ‘Cartlann TG4’ in the offices of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI).

The launch of the archive was made by Minister for Communications, Denis Naughten, and will see footage from the station’s infancy (1996-2004) become available online on the TG4 website.

This project makes available some 1500 hours of TG4 news and current affairs output, produced by Nuacht RTÉ for TG4 and broadcast during the 1996-2004 period, the first years of the channel’s existence.   It received funding support from the BAI’s Archiving Funding Scheme and the approval of RTÉ.  The cataloguing portion of the work, carried out May 2016-July 2017 was outsourced by TG4, following public tender won by Europus, a Gaeltacht-based independent company.

In parallel with the cataloguing,   TG4’s own in-house staff  with thanks to RTÉ Archives, prepared, cleaned and then digitised the Archive contents, designed the cataloguing systems and  also the website through which the content is now accessible to the public for research and educational purposes.

The Archive content now being made available contains a treasure trove of news items of local, regional, national and international significance from TG4’s acclaimed súil eile perspective.  It is certain to be of interest to a wide range of users – students, researchers, historians, linguists and Irish language learners all over the world.  

The National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) will be making use of the Archive as a resource for course material across a range of courses and disciplines in that institution’s faculties

The full TG4 archive is available to view as Gaeilge or in English – here.
