Sound recordist Bobby Bell is second left in the background (with headphones), beside Stuart Hetherington who is taking a still photograph. The three women standing in the right background are, from left to right, production assistant Janet Wynne, director Deirdre Friel and production assistant Kitty Mullany (later Ó Mórdha).
