Thread Name: Anne Byrne: What does she now?
Subject: RE: Anne Byrne: What does she now?
Lin - I would love to be able to tell you that I have all those broadcasts but, unfortunately, as far as I know they do not exist. The Irish Television service was in its infincy in the 1960s (established on 31st December 1961)so very little of its content was recorded and preserved at that time. As far as I know most of what was recorded and preserved is up on Youtube, including some of Anne Byrne's material. Very few of those programmes which I listed have been preserved. I think Nicholas O Carolan, who produced the 'Come West Along the Road' series for Irish Television, has done a thorough search on all that remains in the Irish Television Archives and he has included all that in his wonderful series of programmes down the years.
