Lifers - Thu 31 Jan, 22:15 - 23:15 - RTÉ One (Documentary) - The lives and work of three missionaries

Film-maker Ruan Magan travels to some of the world's remotest regions to meet three missionaries who carry out their duties in some of the toughest circumstances on the planet. John Glynn, who carries out his work for We Care Foundation in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, Pat Murray, a Loreto sister who was employed in education in Ireland and is now in charge of Solidarity with South Sudan, and Pat Brennan, a Divine Word Missionary living in the Amazonian rain forest in Brazil, all tell their stories of endurance and faith in the face of extreme adversity.

Those living outside Ireland may be able to watch the programme on The RTE Player or live on AERTV on the Internet.
