|Caption||Colin Bird in 'An Giall' (1968)|
Irish actor Colin Bird as Óglach IRA, in a scene from the RTÉ Television production of Brendan Behan's play 'An Giall' ('The Hostage'), during filming in Studio 1 in early 1968.
This RTÉ production was broadcast on St Patrick's Day 1968. 'An Giall' was originally written in Irish and this was the version produced by RTÉ. Pádraig Ó Siochrú adapted the play for television; he wrote about it for the RTÉ Guide of 15 March 1968. Stills from this shoot were used to illustrate that article.
