RTÉ has become renowned for producing gripping drama over the years and RTÉ Player is now offering the chance to once again relive some of that drama with every single episode of The Clinic, Proof and one off special Damage available to binge on now. Weekend watching sorted!
Following a dramatic opening scene as 23 dead illegal immigrants are discovered inside a freight container, delve into the murky world of human trafficking, racism, politics and investigative reporting as journalist Terry Corcoran pieces together the various parts of a very disturbing puzzle in 2004 drama Proof. Starring Orla Brady and a very young Saoirse Ronan, every episode of this riveting drama will leave you wanting more. Nominated at the Irish Film and Television Awards for best TV serial in 2004 with Orla Brady also receiving a nomination for Best Actress in a TV serial, Proof is perfect for a weekend binge on RTÉ Player.
The Cahills appear to have the world at their feet. Aidan, played by Downton Abbey’s Brendan Coyle, is a successful property tycoon while his wife Michelle (Olivia Williams) is a successful estate agent and money is no object. As they prepare for their fashion model daughter, Emma’s 21st birthday party at the family home, what promises to be a night to remember soon becomes a virtual nightmare as a rape at the party shatters their seemingly perfect lives. With the key suspect released on bail, and dark family secrets coming to the fore, Emma’s life begins to freefall. Slowly, having made radical changes to her life, Emma (Natalie Press) builds towards recovery – until a chance meeting with her rapist bolsters her conviction that she’ll need to confront him in court before she can get on with her life. From the producers of Proof, Damage is a powerful single drama not to be missed!
