: Ballykissangel: Hello and Farewell

The village mourns the loss of a hero, while Orla might have met a hero of her own.

(See Choice)

(S) (W)

Well, what a way to start a new series!
While most of us assumed that it was Quigley and Orla who were heading for tragedy in their runaway hot-air balloon, it turned out to be the hapless cop Ambrose who came to an untimely end in last week's episode. Now prepare for some really tear-jerking scenes as the scriptwriters make the most of Ambrose's funeral and his widow's guilt over her plans to leave him for Dillon. But life goes on in BallyK and Orla, for one, is busy searching for a new place to live. She goes to view a rundown old cottage and falls in love with the place - only to find out that Conor Devlin (the fisherman who saved her and Quigley from a watery grave) is the landlord.
This episode is dedicated to Birdy Sweeney, who played eccentric farmer Eamon and who died earlier this year while filming this series.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
