OS on the wireless
I happened to hear this interestin g programme on RTE Radio1 on Friday last http://www.rte.ie/radio1/thelieoftheland/rams/12july.smil - an account of building OS trig points and yarns about surveying our high points. - repeats of earlier series.

The Lie Of The Land

With the help of the country's greatest authorities on mapping, Séan Rocks examines how maps of the island of Ireland tell a history of their own. This series seeks to unearth the truth behind the different mapping projects of Ireland, from the observations of Ptolemy and early maps of Ireland such as that of Gerald Cambrensis in the 13th century to the advanced technology of modern mapping which gives a level of accuracy never before attainable.

Listen to the series. http://www.rte.ie/radio1/thelieoftheland/1050624.html
