At Your Service is an eight part series on RTÉ One presented by expert hoteliers Francis and John Brennan from the 5 star Park Hotel Kenmare. They'll be giving business makeovers to a selection of B & B's, guesthouses and small hotels throughout Ireland that need urgent help with a range of different problems. The Brennans bring years of experience of running a successful hotel and they hope to inspire others to up their game and bring in new business.
The Brennans' advice covers all areas; they look at staffing, analyse catering arrangements and suggest new menus, they inspect every room and advise about redecoration (both inside and out) and they look for new ways to exploit the less obvious assets of each property.
Francis Brennan conducts the main inspection and devises an overall strategy. His brother John looks at money issues, explores new marketing opportunities and suggests ways to develop in the future.
However, it's no easy challenge given strong competition from new hotel chains and the economic recession. The owners themselves have also to be convinced that the Brennans' ideas are in their best interests and worth investing in.
Runtime: 30 minutes
At Your Service - Thank You for Your Service (2017 film) - Netflix
Thank You for Your Service is a 2017 American biographical war drama film written and directed by Jason Hall, in his directorial debut, based on the 2013 non-fiction book of the same name by David Finkel. Finkel, a Washington Post reporter, wrote about veterans of the 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment returning to the vicinity of Fort Riley, Kansas, following a 15-month deployment in Iraq in 2007. The film is about posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depicting U.S. soldiers who try to adjust to civilian life, and stars Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Beulah Koale, Amy Schumer and Scott Haze. A new Bruce Springsteen song, “Freedom Cadence”, was written specifically for the closing credits. The film had its world premiere at the Heartland Film Festival on October 15, 2017, and was released in the United States on October 27, 2017, by Universal Pictures. It received generally positive reviews from critics, with praise aimed at the performances (particularly that of Teller, Bennett, and Koale), but grossed just $9 million against its $20 million budget.
