Some Authority colleagues worried about Charlie Bird’s animated style of delivery, in his reports from Northern hotspots like Drumcree and the Apprentice Boys march in Derry. My fear was that an institutional timidity about reporting Northern Ireland, deeply entrenched in Section 31-induced self-censorship patterns, might continue to produce a televisual blandness that would bore and alienate and lack relevance, rather than grip and involve the core RTÉ audience. If it is to remain relevant to Irish people, RTÉ must in fact be shielded from all forms of censorship, so that it can sharpen its critical edge.

It was important not to let these teething difficulties in the initial stages of the postSection 31 era force us to decide prematurely on another very long-running question: should Television News and Current Affairs maintain their editorial separateness, or should they be organisationally merged, forming one structural entity where the “rashness” of reportorial impulses to chase the immediate story might be tempered by the more reflective and analytical instincts of Current Affairs? Such a hasty decision on our part might in fact have been counterproductive, in the sense of signalling that we expected Current Affairs to play the “safe” role.

Pressure to change this was mounting under the influence of a new model of Industrial Relations emerging in other public companies, shaping the work of the RTÉ Trade Union Group Forum that was established in the wake of the major strike in RTÉ earlier in the decade.

Openness was also encouraged by the debate on the enactment of the Freedom of Information Bill, which was starting to gain momentum.
