This documentary programme exploring the Radió Éireann Players, the repertory company for radio in Ireland, formed in 1947, was first broadcast on Tuesday 19 August 1997.
The group attracted international attention in 1982 when they broadcast an uninterrupted, unabridged, 30-hour dramatised performance of James Joyce's epic novel Ulysses, to commemorate the centenary of the author's birth.
The programme was presented and produced by Gerry McArdle and features interviews with Raidió Éireann players including Pegg Monahan, Colette Proctor, Aiden Grenell and producer Micháel O HAodha talking about the Rep and Ulysses.
