|Description||Radharc is the Title of a series of documentaries broadcast by RTE between 1962 and 1996. The first programme was aired on January 12th 1962, just 12 days after the new Irish television service was launched. Over the following 34 years, more than 400 programmes were televised. The word Radharc (pronounces 'Rye-arc') is the Gaelic for 'view', 'vision' or 'panorama'. What the Radharc team set out to do was to bring to an Irish TV audience reports from around Ireland and later from 75 countries all over the world on different ways of living the Christian Gospel understood in its broadest sense. Among the issues covered were human rights, injustice, faith, religion, persecution, struggles against oppressive regimes, famine and Christian heritage.|
