Investigating the social, political and religious background to the violence in El Salvador.
In 1962 an episode of 'Radharc' called "Who is for Liberation?" investigated the social, political and religious background to the continued violence in El Salvador.
The programme focuses on the inequalities and poverty that exist in El Salvador, and the burden that is placed on those who suffer the most, the poor.
'Radharc: Who is for Liberation?' was produced by Joe Dunn with commentary by Ray McAnally and was broadcast on 26 February 1980.
'Radharc', a series specialising in religious programming, was produced for RTÉ by Radharc, an independent production company run by Catholic priests and lay staff. 'Radharc' can be translated to English as 'view' or 'panorama'.
Co-founders Fr Joe Dunn and Fr Desmond Forristal who had received training in television production in New York in 1959 gathered around them a team of like minded priests with creative talent.
The 'Radharc' team made their first production in 1960 in Donegal, a short film about customs relating to St Brigid's Day. The first programme in the 'Radharc' series for RTÉ was broadcast on 12 January 1962.
Between 1961 and 1996 the Radharc team would produce over 400 films in Ireland and 75 countries worldwide. The films dealt with human rights, injustice, faith, religion, persecution, struggles against oppressive regimes, famine, and Christian heritage.
The popular series ended production in 1996 after the death of Fr Joe Dunn.
