  • Information

    The Angelus has been broadcast almost every day since 1950 originally on radio and then television. When television opened from 1962, the 'Angelus Bell' was played from a tape and accompanied by old master paintings of the Annunciation. This series of reflections which began broadcasting in 2009 was to give a new look to the Angelus Periodically, the broadcast Angelus becomes the focus of public controversy but it can claim its place along with News and the Weather Forecast as the longest running 'item', if not programme, on RTÉ.
