An RTE cameraman positioned over the parade ring at the Curragh Racecourse, County Kildare, just prior to the start of the Budweiser Irish Derby on 27 June 1987. He is standing on a platform above the spectators. The RTE logo is clearly visible on the side of the camera. A second member of the production crew is standing to the side of the camera, signalling to the cameraman.
RTE television broadcast live coverage of the 1987 Budweiser Derby as part of its regular Saturday afternoon sports programme 'Sports Stadium'. That year's race was won by the horse Sir Harry Lewis.
