1916: The Irish Rebellion

Narrated by actor Liam Neeson, the series 1916 THE IRISH REBELLION tells the dramatic story of the events that took place in Dublin during Easter of 1916, when a small group of poorly-armed Irish rebels took on the might of the British Empire. Although defeated militarily, this small group of men and women would wring a moral victory from the jaws of defeat and would inspire countless freedom struggles throughout the world. The documentary-featuring a combination of rarely seen archival footage, new segments filmed on location worldwide, and interviews with leading international experts-also uncovers the untold story of the central role Irish Americans played in the lead-up to the rebellion.
