A wide shot of the set of the 1997 Eurovision Song Contest, during dress rehearsals in Dublin's Point Theatre on 3 May 1997. This still was taken from a high vantage point behind the audience seats. The rehearsal is being watched by several people seated in the front rows. RTE's staff magazine 'Access', published on 29 May 1997, featured extensive behind-the-scenes coverage of that year's contest.
Katrina and the Waves won the 1997 Eurovision for the United Kingdom with 'Love Shine a Light'. RTE Television broadcast the contest live with Carrie Crowley and Ronan Keating presenting. The RTE Guide of 2 May 1997 included a souvenir programme which gave details on all of that year's contestants.
