A Eurovision Affair, the new Reality Bites documentary which follows producer/director Pat O’Mahony as he joins six of the biggest Irish names in Eurovision history on tour, will be shown on RTÉ Two tonight, Monday February 18, at 9:30pm.
The makers of the show have said: “In A Eurovision Affair Pat went behind-the-scenes of this unique travelling show, not only exploring up close and personal how it all came together over two weeks in October 2012, but also witnessing first-hand the extraordinary affection that this pan-continental song competition inspires in the nation’s collective heart.
“The Best Of Eurovision: Ireland’s Winners tour saw Johnny Logan, Dana, Linda Martin, Niamh Kavanagh, Paul Harrington and Charlie McGettigan perform a whole host of favourite Eurovision hits, bringing audiences around the country on a very exclusive trip down Eurovision memory lane.
“Of course getting this extra-special six-pack performance on the road was far from plain sailing.
“In A Eurovision Affair Pat captures both the plethora of last-minute rehearsal chaos that would have damned lesser productions and how, out on the road, things rarely go to plan.
“But he also gets a unique insight into the various rarely-seen relationships between the six stars of the show as they spend time together on the road, aware that if egos are allowed run riot it could all end in tears.”
