UTV’s new series, The Magazine, starts on Sunday 7 April at 7.30pm, with host Sarah Travers in her home town of Portstewart to introduce us to some of her favourite people, places and topics!
In the first programme, we meet the north coast’s brave ‘Greywatch’ swimmers, take a trip to Barry’s Amusements in Portrush and of course, pay a visit to Morelli’s famous ice cream parlour on Portstewart’s promenade.
Sarah is also joined by some local celebrities and media personalities as she gets ‘out and about’.
Broadcaster John Kearns catches up with her and pays tribute to one of Portstewart’s most famous sons, Henry McCullough - a member of Paul McCartney’s band, Wings and the only Irishman to play at Woodstock.
TV presenter, Emma-Rosa Dias finds out what it takes to be a lifeguard with the RNLI and local journalist, Graham Little takes a trip to the shores of Strangford Lough to find out more about a tea plantation planned for Portaferry.
Sarah said: “It’s been a real treat to kick off the series with a trip to my home town. I love the north coast and it’s been a privilege to show off some of the things I like best about the area – including the opportunity to sample some of my favourite ice cream.
“We plan to get to as many cities, towns and villages as possible during the series and I’m excited at the prospect of meeting new people, hearing great stories, discovering the unusual - and generally enjoying the local banter!”
