Peig Doc a ratings smash for TG4

12th March 2021
Waddell Media’s documentary PEIG about the Irish language storyteller Peig Sayers clearly struck a chord, attracting 72k viewers and 6.3% share according to the overnights, an exceptionally strong performance for a documentary on the Irish language broadcaster.

Peig Sayers – widely considered to be the most hated woman in Irish history has tormented young students across Ireland for decades with her memoir ‘Peig’. Described as boring, unrelenting, and unintelligible, Peig’s autobiography was part of the compulsory Leaving Certificate Irish syllabus until 1995. This new documentary, presented by broadcaster Sinéad Ní Uallacháin, revisits Peig, her personality and her art as a storyteller reclaiming her and portraying her as she has never been before.

Peig was directed by Evan Chamberlain for TG4 with funding support from the Irish language Broadcast Fund.

NEW SERIES Suzie Lee's Home Cook Heroes

5th August 2020
Waddell Media's brand new series on BBC One Northern Ireland, Suzie Lee's Home Cook Heroes, starts Thursday 6th August at 7.30pm.

Winner of the BBC’s national cookery competition, Best Home Cook, Suzie Lee is on a mission to help the people of Northern Ireland make the very best of whatever they have in their cupboards and create gorgeous meals from scratch.  

Suzie takes one key ingredient per episode (Whole Chicken/Rump Steak/Eggs), which provides the basis for three different meal options. Detailing a range of simple techniques, short cuts and money saving tips Suzie takes us through a range of family friendly dishes based on a range of readily available ingredients.
Suzie says: “I’m on a mission to get people back into their kitchens. You can be your own hero, in your own kitchen, own it.  Cooking from scratch is nothing to be scared of and anyone can be a home cook hero.”

In the first episode of the series, Suzie uses a Rump steak to create Enchiladas, complete with home cooked tortilla wraps, the ultimate burger and Beef Ho Fan. All rounded off with that firm family favourite Sticky Toffee Pudding . This week she is shadowed by the McConnell’s from Antrim, who have their work cut out learning a new recipe with the help of their four young children.
