A witty and informative look at College Green in Dublin, from 1969 when the programme 'Newsbeat' reported on the architecture of the area.

Focusing on Trinity College and the various bank buildings, special attention is given to the ironwork and stone crests. Also included is the Thomas Davis statue and fountain. Artist Liam C. Martin is pictured sketching the Ulster Bank building.

The humorous commentary complete with a strong Dublin accent is from Frank Kelly.

A 'Newsbeat' report broadcast on 26 September 1969.
