Buntús Cainte (English: Basic Speaking) was a programme aimed at teaching the Irish language that was broadcast on Raidió Teilifís Éireann in Ireland, beginning in 1967. The show was designed to appeal to young viewers, and was (unusually for RTÉ's educational output) lively and humorous. The programme was presented by Máire O'Neill and Aileen Geoghegan. By November 1967, 218,000 copies of the Buntús Cainte lessons booklet had been sold. The programme catered for people with little or no Irish. Phrases were spoken by the presenters in both Irish and English, and were also overlaid (in Irish) on a simple static cartoon relating to the phrase.

Mother Teresa's contemplative life was through service to the poor, Jesus' most distressing disguise. Our Holy Father Pope Francis is saying the same thing. The truth never changes. Wherever is the poor, the helpless, the fatherless, motherless orphan, the one in need, there is Christ, waiting for us. In her second appearance on Irish television Mother Teresa of Calcutta talks to Nodlaig McCarthy about her life and work. The first broadcast aired on September 15, 1974.
