Description   A scene from the RTÉ Television production of Brendan Behan's play 'An Giall' ('The Hostage'), during filming in Studio 1 in early 1968. From left to right; Michael Campion as Leslie, Áine Ní Mhuirí as Colette and Bernadette McKenna as Treasa. Ni Mhuiri is holding an object in her hand - possibly a cigarette?; she and Campion are smiling at each other.

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.
