Happy birthday Six One News 25 today. The programme first went on air on 3 October 1988, with newsreaders Seán Duignan and Eileen Dunne at the helm. Since then the faces have changed, along with the studio and graphics, but the Six One continues to deliver all the latest national and international news from 6.01 to 7pm, Monday to Friday.

RTÉ Archives takes a look back at the evolution of the Six One with this montage of newsreaders and their headlines from the 1990s to the present day. Good evening and welcome from Eileen Dunne, Éamonn Lawlor, Seán Duignan, Anne Doyle, Anne Cassin, Úna O'Hagan, Bryan Dobson and Sharon Ní Bheoláin.
