Reeling in the Years is a historical documentary series broadcast in Ireland by RTE. Each episode, approximately 25 minutes long, looks back at the news and events of a particular year, from 1962 to 1999. The programme uses news archive footage, along with subtitles as the means of narration, to recount notable Irish and international events of the time. Music from the particular year is also played over the footage, with occasional scenes of live performances or videos, generally by an Irish artist.
The theme tune for the series comes from Steely Dan's 1972 hit "Reelin' In The Years".
"RTE has said that, because of the number of clips from external companies used in the series, it would be infeasible to release it on VHS or DVD. It claims that securing "video clearance" for each clip and song would make any release prohibitively expensive. RT?? did consider releasing an altered version of the program which would only contain the images that they owned the rights to. However, this idea was abandoned because they felt that it would not be as good as the broadcast version of the show." Wikipedia
