Description   From left to right; former RTÉ producer John McColgan, British broadcaster and writer Alistair Cooke and former RTÉ broadcaster Mike Murphy, in the library of Dublin's RDS (Royal Dublin Society) in July 1977.
Cooke was in the RDS to give a talk, and was interviewed by broadcaster John O'Donoghue for the RTÉ Television summer magazine programme 'Summer Journal', broadcast on 3 August 1977. Mike Murphy was presenting and John McColgan producing RTÉ Television's 'The Likes of Mike' at this time, but given that the programme was broadcast between 1972 and 1977, it is unclear whether Cooke featured on the programme at any stage.

Alistair Cooke is best known for his weekly BBC radio broadcast 'Letter from America', which he broadcast for 58 years, from 5 March 1946 to 20 February 2004.
