John Bowman is both a broadcaster and historian whose career as a broadcaster began in the 1960s. A highly recognizable figure of Irish media, he has presented documentaries, current affairs, and election-results programmes, among them Today Tonight and Questions & Answers. John completed a PhD, De Valera and the Ulster Question: 1917-1973, which was published by OUP in 1982 and won the Ewart-Biggs Award.
"The history of RTE turns out to be the history of an Irish people determined to shape its own future, Bowman argues. In his insightful and evocatively illustrated new book Bowman conjures decades of Irish social change." * Irish Voice *
