Description   RTÉ newsreader Charles Mitchel, prepares to read results during RTÉ Television's 1973 general election coverage, in studio on 1 March 1973. RTÉ Television provided extensive results coverage of this election, full details of which can be found in the RTÉ Guide of 23 February (polling day was 28 February 1973). Stills from this shoot were used to illustrate a follow-up article on this coverage, in the RTÉ Guide of 9 March 1973.

Charles Mitchel was Telefís Éireann's first newsreader; he read the first bulletin for the station on 1 January 1962. He was also an actor with the Gaiety Theatre from 1947 until he joined RTÉ. He retired from the station in November 1984.
