The 19,985 people that work, live and study on campus are the primary focus of a new documentary ‘Inside Trinity’. The four part series is a vibrant and breathing portrait of their lives – capturing the depth and breadth of human and educational experiences that happen within Trinity’s campus, extending from Front Arch on College Green to the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute on Pearse Street. Loosehorse Television and RTÉ, partnered with Trinity to produce the series which was filmed over the past year.
Filmed throughout the 2015/16 academic year, ‘Inside Trinity’ offers a fascinating glimpse of a great Irish institution at work. The cameras capture the whole gamut of life: study, teaching and learning, research, sports and lots more.
The first episode was aired last night and will be broadcast on RTÉ 1 Television for the next three weeks (10.15pm, Thursdays). Last night’s episode featured Freshers’ Week at the beginning of another academic term with all the different clubs and societies on Front Square. It featured the then Students’ Union President, Lynn Ruane as she moved her family into Trinity and settled into her new role. We also caught up with some of Trinity’s leading academics who talked about their work.
The next three episodes will show our students and staff involved in a range of educational activities. Sports clubs, Trinity Access Programmes and the Library also have prominent roles. Tune in of a Thursday evening for some very interesting viewing.
