A viewer's letter to 'Mailbag' in 1987 is critical of a change to the new RTÉ symbol and prompts a discussion on the history and design of the logo.

Presenter Arthur Murphy introduces a letter from a viewer in Laois which is critical of the new RTÉ symbol.

David Holden the Director of Public Affairs at RTÉ explains that in the 25 years of Irish television there has been 9 versions of the symbol. He goes on to explain the thinking behind the new design.

Five of the previous symbols are shown and an explanation of how the original logo was based on the St Brigid's cross. The new design for a symbol came after a competition was held. One of the main criticisms of the symbol is that design is fussy compared to the simplicity of the original symbol.
