Its aim is to broadcast local stories to a global audience and it has a programme called Out and About in Manchester, which is broadcast weekly and is presented by correspondent Martin Logan.

Martin attended famous entertainer Jimmy’s 70th birthday celebrations at the popular Frog and Bucket comedy venue in Manchester last month, along with his cameraman, Sam, and spent a fair amount of time capturing the atmosphere at the event.

They grabbed an interview with the birthday boy himself and also got a word with Jimmy’s oldest daughter, Jamie, who had travelled up from her base in London to be there.

… and meet the cameraman!

Irish TV, which is aimed at an audience based in Ireland and the overseas ex-pats market, has a Manchester-based presenter called Martin Logan. Jimmy has previously appeared with Martin on  the station.

The channel has just had a relaunch in Dublin which will see Martin present a new programme from Manchester each week.

To mark the occasion, Martin asked some Manchester-based celebrities with an Irish connection to wish the channel all the very best for the future.

So Martin came to Jimmy’s home in late April with his cameraman and they filmed some footage of the funnyman being his usual comical self.
