Step back in time

Irish Public Service Broadcasting has been producing and curating broadcast materials for eight decades. The RTÉ Libraries and Archives collections consist of radio and television programmes, still images, production files, scripts, music scores and manuscripts.

In recognizing the potential of this site as an educational resource, RTÉ aims to provide content that might be used in learning and teaching across all levels of Irish education. See 'History of RTÉ' for a selection of key moments in Public Service Broadcasting in Ireland since the foundation of 2RN in 1926.
In the mid-1990s RTÉ set up a digitising and cataloguing project that will eventually see all audio visual holdings preserved to best international practice. These collections offer a unique and important record of Irish life and continue to be augmented every day.  

RTÉ's archival holdings can be seen in the Look and Listen section.
RTÉ's Online Photographic Archive holds over 70,000 images
