The Story of Ireland (DVD)
Meticulously researched and beautifully filmed, The Story of Ireland is the definitive 21st Century account of Ireland's remarkable past. Presented by Fergal Keane, this expansive and outward-looking series offers an authoritative reappraisal of Ireland's dramatic past, looking at the evolution of the country in a global context and challenging some of the potent myths that have become an accepted facet of the country's history. It follows the evolution of the modern nation through waves of migration and emigration and highlights the key moments of Irish history from the adoption of Christianity through the Protestant plantation, Great Famine and Partition to the Good Friday Agreement. It also assesses the influence of prominent figures from Brian Boru, Wolfe Tone and Daniel O'Connell to ?',amon De Valera, Michael Collins and WB Yeats.
