I really wonder why the two episodes of the RTE-Danish TV program Proof were put on at 00.20 in the morning and not at a more reasonable time. But then the theme of the program, human trafficking of Eastern European women to fund expensive political campaigns for corrupt politicians is a bit too close to reality for prime time programming. Ireland, the Celtic Tiger, has gained massively from membership of the European Union, but many have been left behind by this economic miracle and feel like strangers in their own country.

Perhaps on the banks of the Liffey there are more corrupt politicians than anywhere else........... or would another capital city claim that honour.
