Gorillas at Dublin Zoo Get Colour TV

On this day in 1976 RTÉ News reports from Dublin Zoo where a colour television has been installed for the entertainment of the gorillas. Interestingly, the gorillas had colour television in the zoo, while many people still had black and white sets at home.

Reporter Michael Walsh meets Zookeeper Michael Clark and some of the gorillas. Clark cites horse racing, car racing, football, and Sesame Street amongst the favourite viewing options for the gorillas.

A RTÉ News report from 27 February, 1976.
