Night Night North West
Night Night North West is a series of half-hour radio broadcasts of bedtime stories on Highland Radio, starting on Thursday 18 January 2018 at 7.30pm.
The programmes were recorded at library venues around the county, featuring various readers reading to pupils from local schools.
The first broadcast in the series features Laureate an nÓg PJ Lynch reading 'The Selfish Giant' by Oscar Wilde to pupils from Scoil Colmcille in the Central Library Letterkenny.
The series is designed to educate and inform but in a soft and informal way, where those present and those listening will get to experience and learn about Irish literature. Speaking about the project, Real Films Director, Alison Toomey said ‘Night Night North West is a bedtime story format which aims to use the power of oral tradition and the depth and strength of our literature, to explore themes of Irish culture, heritage and experience with the young people of Donegal. In doing so we will encourage, reading, literacy, debating and the process involved in creative thought.’
Why not tune in between 7.30 and 8pm on Thursday evenings and listen to a bedtime story suitable for all ages?
