Description   RTÉ producer James Plunkett (left), Irish journalist and historian Desmond Ryan (centre) and Johnny O'Connor, the telegraphist who transmitted the first news of the 1916 Easter Rising from the GPO, in a shot taken for the RTV (RTÉ) Guide in Radio Éireann's offices in the GPO on 11 April 1962.

This photograph was taken during the filming of the Telefís Éireann (RTÉ Television) documentary 'I Remember Easter: Reminiscences of Easter Week 1916', in which survivors of the Easter Rising recalled their participation in it against filmed backgrounds of the parts of the city in which they were based. Desmond Ryan assisted producer James Plunkett in compiling the programme. The RTV Guide previewed the programme on 20 April 1962; a still from this shoot accompanied that article.
