In the second section of this recording, Brian Forbes recalls his Presidency of the Students’ Union at Bolton Street, during his third year of study for his engineering degree. He explains that he saw a need to remove the highly politicised cohort which ran the Students’ Union prior to his Presidency. He recalls the Students’ Union and its activities in debating, the production of posters and badges, ‘Bolt’ magazine which they produced and printed, and the interaction with other students’ unions. He also discusses in detail his later work at RTÉ, where he worked on the setting up of a library archive, and his involvement in the building of premises for use by TG4 in 1995/6. He also gives his views on the differences he encountered in his employment between RTÉ and DIT.
