This still was one of a series taken for use in, and/or publicising of, a discussion on those in retirement, for RTÉ Television's series on religious matters, 'Encounter'. This was a live weekly programme featuring filmed reports, presented by Bunny Carr, which examined the role of Christianity in contemporary life. This particular programme was broadcast on 6 December 1970. A still from this shoot was used to illustrate a brief article about the programme published in the RTÉ Guide of 4 December 1970.
