Borderline (1986-1988)


Borderline was a “young people’s show” on RTÉ Television from 1986-1988. The show’s presenters were Aonghus McAnally, Majella Nolan, Ronan Johnston, Eithne Hand and Maria Doyle. As part of their 50 years celebrations RTE has posted one complete show online. The show in question (1/3/1988) coincided with The Stag Hotpress Awards. Winners who popped into studio to chat and/or perform include Rory Gallagher, Mary Coughlan, Something Happens (‘Burn Clear’), Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen. Also performing on the show were The Sugar Rays (‘House In Order’) and The Stars Of Heaven (’28’).

    Would you have any photographs of the first episode of ‘Borderline’ from RTÉ ONE TV in 1986 please? I was in the audience for the first show which featured BB King and also a discussion on the Irish language. Thank you.

  5. My Band “The Suspects” appeared live on Borderline in 1988. I wonder does anyone have a recording of this. Aslan appeared on the same the same episode.
