Description   An RTÉ crew film a scene from the Telefís Éireann (RTÉ Television) drama series 'Insurrection', on the roof of Dublin's GPO in early 1966. Proudcer/director Michael Garvey can be seen in the right background, smoking a cigarette. The actor playing an rebel/volunteer on the ledge on the right is unidentified.

'Insurrection' was an eight-part dramatised reconstruction of the events of Easter Week 1916, shown to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The series was shown on eight consecutive nights on Telefís Éireann from 10-17 April 1966. The RTV (RTÉ) Guide extensively previewed the series in a special anniversary edition published on 8 April 1966.
