Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year from all of us here at RTÉ Archives.

2012 was a busy year for RTÉ Archives with the celebrations for 50 years of television in Ireland. TV50 brought you TV Classics from the archives and RTÉ Archives launched a new website to make TV, radio and documents from our collections accessible to the public.

Since the launch of the new website in July, RTÉ Archives has published 18 online exhibitions on themes as diverse as the life and works of poet Patrick Kavanagh, to coverage of the Civil Rights Movement in Northern Ireland in the late 1960's.

With our photographic collections we asked for and got your help with naming many individuals and places that we could not identify. We were delighted to discover a copy of The School Around the Corner that had not been seen for 50 years.

RTÉ Archives will continue in 2013 to provide more online curated content from our television, radio, photographic and document archives.

To keep up to date with the latest exhibitions and content made available on the site, follow @RTÉArchives on Twitter.
