The story of the Irish war of independence 1919 to 1922.
Featuring rarely seen archive footage, rare, first hand witness accounts, 3-D CGI mapping, dramatic visuals and contributions by the finest writers and historians, the programme tells the story of the people’s revolution of 1916 to 1922, as it has never been told before. We explore how the rebels drew heavily the revolutionary spirit that swept the world in the first years of the 20th century, reveal the astonishing events that forced Britain’s hand and show how the Irish example had a far reaching impact, causing millions around the world to rise up and demand their right to equality and freedom.
