Description   Vietnamese children receive presents from Santa Claus, at Switzers department store in Dublin, in December 1979. These children were among the Vietnamese refugees, known as 'Boat People', who departed Vietnam en masse in the late 1970s, following the ending of the war there.

These children sang 'Silent Night' in Vietnamese for RTE Radio 1's 'My Choice of Music', broadcast on Christmas Eve 1979. It featured well-known citizens choosing their favourtie music. A still from this shoot was used to illustrate a brief RTE Guide article about the programme, published on 21 December 1979.
