Aifric is an Irish-language TV series aimed at young teenagers, directed by Paul Mercier. The first of the weekly thirteen-part series began broadcasting on 31 October 2006, the date of TG4's tenth anniversary. The series follows the life of Aifric whose wacky family have just moved to a new town in the West of Ireland. The 14yr old wants nothing more than to fit in but feels her family will not make it easy for her. Her mother is a new-age hippy who has banned television, while her father is a wannabe rock star, not to mention her annoying little brother. As well as on TG4, Aifric is also shown on BBC Alba, where it is dubbed in Scottish Gaelic.
