Cavan town and its people are the stars of the opening sequence for 'Hall's Pictorial Weekly'.

Some local people wave to the camera as the Hall's Pictorial Weekly production crew capture a day in the life of the town of Cavan. Along with people going about their business in the town is Cavan Cathedral.

This episode of 'Hall's Pictorial Weekly' was broadcast on 20 April 1977.

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.
