  • Extended description

    The opening title sequence from the current affairs series 'Seven Days' (which later became '7 Days'). The series began broadcasting 26 September 1966.

    The current affairs programme, which often tackled subjects of public controversy in a forthright manner, found itself at the centre of several issues of conflict between RTÉ and the Government in the late 1960s, which would lead to the resignation of one of the RTÉ executives.

    This clip shows the opening title sequence and presenter John O'Donoghue of a '7 Days' programme on money lending which was first broadcast 11 November 1969.
