    Radharc was an Irish television documentary religious affairs series broadcast by RTÉ Television from 1962 until 1996. The documentaries were created by a film unit funded by the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, John Charles McQuaid, in anticipation of the inauguration of television broadcasting in Ireland by RTÉ in December 1961. The film unit was staffed exclusively by Catholic priests, including Joe Dunn, Desmond Forristal and Sean Lemass. The Irish language word radharc means vision, view, or panorama.

    The Radharc collection is one of the most important and substantial bodies of work held by the Irish Film Institute. The collection totals some 2,340 cans and 2,093 broadcast quality tapes. Over 130 documentaries deal with non-Irish issues. The material acquired comprises the various preservation elements required to produce a finished documentary, including soundtracks, voiceovers, sound effects, off cuts, final mix negatives, cutting copies and final prints, with copyright in the films shared between the Radharc Trust and RTÉ.

    Titles may be purchased on DVD from The Radharc Archive.

    A number of the titles can be viewed freely on the EUscreen website.

    The Moving Image and Recorded Sound (MIRS) Division documents the experiences of peoples of African descent, as they have been captured via audiovisual technology. The collections encompass a variety of formats including motion picture film (released prints and outtakes), video recordings, and music, and spoken arts recordings in several formats. Included in the broad range of audiovisual materials are documentary and dramatic films, principally focusing upon international political, anthropological, religious, and cultural arts themes. A unique collection of public affairs television programmes documents the local concerns of African Americans in communities across the United States. Public service announcements and commercial advertisements are also strongly represented.

    Since 1980 the MIRS has conducted oral history interviews through its Oral History/Video Documentation Programme. These primary source video testimonies are part of one of the nation’s longest-running video oral history programme.

    The collections are held at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Researchers from abroad may access the collection on site having obtained a temporary library card. Increasingly, the Center’s audio-visual holdings are being cataloged in The New York Public Library’s online public access catalogue.
