There's also the TG4 Irish language ones 'Siar an Bothar' which would give you even more choice (they do all have English sub-titles)! Unfortunately RTE pulled the plug on making any new ones in 2004 but there's plenty to be getting on with all the old ones! Happy viewing - quality TV!

In fairness, they were running out of archive material a bit.

BBC Northern Ireland ran a similar archive series as well, presented and curated by Paul Brady. I forget what the name was.

I don't know, I can't remember. But I don't think it was (there was another series on folk music by John Peel of that name). I do have some recollection of either RTE or TG4 airing a few episodes of it in the past few years.

Tony McAuley on Wikipedia reckons it was.

The entry for McAuley onm wiki says:

'His musical ability led him to produce and direct a ground breaking Irish music programme titled As I Roved Out, a programme responsible for giving many musicians their first TV appearance; artists now well known such as Mary Black, Paul Brady, Christy Moore and others. '

Which is not the same as an archive based programme presented and curated by Paul Brady, that I mentioned. Seamus Ennis worked on an 'As I roved out show' until 1958 as well but that's I believe yet another one.

But it doesn't matter, all I said there was an archive based programme presented by Paul Brady and it ran on BBC Northern Ireland, I saw some episodes of it on either RTE or TG4 perhaps tow or three years ago, I don't know the name of it.

"As I roved out ..." - almost as common a programme title as a song opening line!
