BRAY historian Rob Goodbody is the principal contributor to a new documentary to air in Dublin South FM Community Radio.

'Giving the Greatest Good,' is a nine-part series which investigates the Oscar Schindler stories of the Irish famine, throwing light on the selfless and heroic stories of people such as the members of the Quaker's Central Relief Committee or the Ellises of Letterfrack or James Alcock of Ring who saved many lives during this island's darkest hour. Mr. Goodbody is the foremost expert on this chapter of Irish History, and has written a book entitled 'A Suitable Channel — Quaker Relief in the Great Famine.'

The series will air on Dublin South 93.9 FM from today at 4.30 p.m. and on Dublin City 103.2 from tomorrow at 11 a.m.
