The new 2020 season of Documentary on One productions (podcast & radio), will run to the end of the year covering a diverse range of topics including life, sport, music, fun, family, health, politics, challenge, and death.
This weekend (Saturday 2pm) tells the story of one Irish woman’s determination to compete in and finish a long distance dogsled race in the most extreme of weather conditions in Norway. Listeners will feel a range of emotions as they journey with Helen Mullane through the mountains of Norway, a true tale of jeopardy as she and her Huskies share full access with the Documentary on One team.
Following The Long Run, the Documentary on One explores a cross section of stories connected to Ireland. Throughout the season, listeners will be treated to tales like an inside view from one of the biggest robberies in US history; to the Bloody Sunday massacre in Croke Park, where the grandnephew of one of the Tipperary team who played and escaped, retraces his Uncle’s journey.
There’s lots to tune in for this year in a summer where almost every sports fan has been denied their viewing pleasure of the 2020 Olympics and so the Documentary on One team take you back to Atlanta and Munich in two Olympic themed documentaries, and also share the story of Cuban boxing trainer Nicholas Cruz Hernandez.
In September fans of the hugely successful podcast series The Nobody Zone are in for a further treat, as the series returns with two new episodes. As recent leads and further information from listeners came to light, these episodes reveal critically new elements to the story of Kieran Patrick Kelly.
Further highlights of the 2020 season include stories on the War of Independence, East Timor, a man waiting for the world’s first double arm transplant, the Hare Krishna Movement, cyber security and the age of the internet.
The Documentary on One is available to podcast every Friday morning, and broadcasts on RTÉ Radio 1 on Saturday afternoons at 2pm, repeated on Sunday evenings at 7pm.
