‘4,000 Goodbyes’ Scoops Radharc Award
05 May 2006 :

The Radharc Winner

The RTÉ television documentary ‘When You Say 4000 Goodbyes’, the work of Dubliner Dr Mike Meegan, an Irish aid worker who spent over a quarter of a century fighting poverty and disease in African villages, has won the prestigious Radharc Award 2006.

Produced by Caroline Bleahen, RTÉ and presented by RTÉ reporter Jim Fahy, the documentary tells the story of Dr Mike Meegan’s work in African villages devastated by Aids, malaria and TB. The aid worker, who was awarded an Irish People of the Year International Award in 2003 and was recently awarded an honorary doctorate from NUI, went to work among Kenya’s Masai people in 1979.

At the Award ceremony, producer Caroline Bleahen was presented with a bronze casting of the Radharc emblem by guest-of-honour Boris Bergant, Vice-President of the European Broadcasting Union.

Other award winners were ‘Sing and You Win’, the documentary produced by Adrian McCarthy and Martha O’Neill of Wildfire Film which won the 'Highly Commended' award, and ‘Child Labour in India,’ the story of five children living and working in India, produced by Peadar King/KMF Productions which won the 'Commended' award.

The Radharc Award is sponsored by The Radharc Trust, RTÉ, TG4, the International Academy of Broadcasting and the Broadcasting Commission of Ireland.
