1916 on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.

Gareth Naughton writes:

“Narrated by Liam Neeson, 1916 places the Irish Rising in its European and global contexts as anti-colonialism found its voice in the wake of the First World War. It explores the crucial role of the United States and of Irish America in both the lead up to and the aftermath of the events.”

Mad that she didn’t trust us.

Thatcher: Ireland and the Iron Lady tonight on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.

From the RTÉ blurb:

“Nowhere was Margaret Thatcher’s influence on world affairs more complex, contentious and turbulent than on the island of Ireland. Thatcher’s 12 years of dictating British policy produced a legacy of bitterness and entrenched division that continues to spark impassioned responses to this day.”
