Synopsis

Liam Neeson narrates this three-part documentary about the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin. As well as charting the events of the rebellion, the programme examines events leading up to and after the Rising and places a new importance on the role of Irish Americans in the struggle. Although the rebellion was quickly suppressed subsequent events it inspired would lead to the end of British rule in Ireland and in other parts of the country's far-reaching empire.
