The Meaning of Life with Gay Byrne
RTÉ One, Sunday, January 17
10:30pm (30 mins)
Interview with Gabriel Byrne
What’s it all about? Why am I here? Is there a God? Why do bad things happen? What happens when we die? In this series, Gay Byrne talks to public figures about these questions and others. Like him, none of them is a religious expert, but all of them have, at times, had cause to think about The Meaning of Life [The webpage for this show no longer exists at the RTÉ website, effective October 2017].

Added January 21: You will see many articles in the mainstream press and the blogosphere about this interview. May I suggest that you watch the interview? Some of the information being reported in these articles is less than accurate. The interview is the important thing!
