'Right to Reply' 1968, hosted by John Bowman. But who are the panellists?
'Right to Reply' 1968, hosted by John Bowman. But who are the panellists?

Earlier this week we asked for your help with identifying the panellists that appeared alongside presenter John Bowman on the 1968 programme 'Right to Reply'.

Thanks to everyone who has contacted us with their suggestions.

Among the names that have been put forward so far include: Michael O'Leary, Liam Cosgrave, Alan Shatter, Michael Woods, Anthony Clare, and Desmond O'Malley.

We think it is Liam Cosgrave sitting far right but are not able to confirm the others.

What do you think? All suggestions welcome.

This programme invited viewers into studio to question and criticise RTÉ programme-makers. Presenter John Bowman is in the centre but the panellists are unidentified. The programme under discussion is RTÉ Television's popular music show 'Like Now!'.
