One Pair of Eyes, the celebrated series of highly-personal films, ran for eight years - from 1967-1974. For this series, one programme from each of those years has been selected.

1969: David Holden the distinguished author and journalist, who was tragically murdered in Egypt in 1977, argues in The Unreal Image that modern communications don't necessarily communicate any better than the old.
Television, radio, computers and jet aeroplanes may seem to bring the world to our hearth-rug but they also increase the danger of mistaking the image for reality. The sheer volume of today's instant words and pictures is so overwhelming that, to make sense of them, we take refuge in stereotype attitudes, we rely on new myths - and in doing so, we erect still more unreal images of the world.

The Legacy of Want
You may think it perverse to come to a country noted only in history for starvation and famine to talk about food, and it was to find food after the failure of the potato crop in the 1840s that so many families left Cork. But things have changed. Introduced by Derek Cooper
