Riverdance – who did the TV direction?

Moya Doherty and John McColgan produced and directed the show – but did they do the television direction as well? They were both television veterans at the time – so they clearly understood the importance of great direction. They must have got someone special, if they didn’t do it themselves, because if you watch the performance and focus on how the shot changes are so integral to the visuals and the music in creating a sense of epic performance and relentless, urgent energy that it has to come close to being one of the best piece of television direction ever. Simply brilliant!
