The 'PrimeTime' presenter, who lost out to Ryan Tubridy in the 'Late Late' race, will present six new episodes in coming weeks as part of RTE's summer line-up unveiled yesterday.

Health and safety inspectors will be put under the spotlight in a six-part series that lifts the lid on illegal smokers, fly-tippers, filthy restaurants and dodgy work sites.

'The Enforcers' takes the viewer undercover as both public and private-sector health and environment inspectors use hidden cameras, sting operations and police-like stakeouts to catch culprits who put the public health and safety at risk by flouting the law.

The Garda Traffic Corps will also go public in another six-part fly-on-the-wall type documentary.

Journalists will become fodder for public scrutiny as a new series called 'The Big Story' features some of Ireland's leading newshounds discussing the major stories they covered.

Disease

Along with five new factual series, RTE will air also air a timely documentary called 'Outbreak' that uses footage from RTE's archive unit to delve into serious outbreaks of disease here over the past century.

Stephen Rea heads the cast in a new drama series called 'Father and Son', while two new cooking shows, 'Trish's Mediterranean Kitchen' and 'Clodagh McKenna's Seafood Adventure', will air.

The station will also unveil a new four-part reality series next week, but was keeping its cards close to its chest last night.
