The people and streets of Dingle County Kerry are the stars of this 'Hall's Pictorial Weekly' opening sequence.
Fishing boats are in Dingle Harbour and some fishermen are finished for the day. A car is in the process of being reversed up a street and locals look out from doorways with curiosity at the camera.
This episode of 'Hall's Pictorial Weekly’ was broadcast on 22 January 1976.
Once a week, from June to September, the ‘Hall’s Pictorial Weekly’ film crew would arrive at a town or village in any county in Ireland. They would film the people and the place and return to RTÉ where the footage was edited and put to music.
This short film of around one minute’s duration formed part of the opening sequence for that week’s episode. But no-one knew which location had been chosen, and it was not advertised as part of the programme billings in the RTÉ Guide or newspapers.
So with this in mind, people the length and breadth of the country tuned in religiously, in case it was the turn of their town or village to have its few minutes of fame.
