The first of the two part documentary series on Radharc is on RTÉ One tonight at 10.15.

'The Radharc Squad' was made by Tyrone Productions for RTÉ and directed by Ruán Magan. In the 50th year of both RTÉ television and Radharc the documentary looks at an output that saw over 400 documentaries produced between 1962 and 1996.

During that time Radharc brought Irish television audiences stories covering a wide range of social, political and religious issues.

More from Radharc on television this week when a 1964 edition 'Down and Out in Dublin' will be broadcast on RTÉ One on Thursday 6 December 11.55pm.
