Workers weigh and pack rashers, on an assembly line in a meat processing plant in County Waterford, on 28 August 1968. The workers, almost all of whom are female, are sitting at tables on which small weighing scales are placed. A conveyor belt transports baskets of packed rashers for boxing, while sliced rashers are carried on a separate belt underneath. All of the workers are wearing hats. This still was taken for use in RTE television's educational programming, 'Telefis Scoile'.
'Telefis Scoile' comprised several different series of programmes on subjects studied by secondary school students at Junior (Intermediate/Junior Certificate) and Senior (Leaving Certificate) levels. It was initiated by RTE in 1964 in association with the Department of Education.
