1916

This three-part documentary series examines the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin and the subsequent events that led to the establishment of an independent Irish state and indirectly to the breakup of the British Empire. A century later, this series narrated by Liam Neeson 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 in the leadup to and the aftermath of the events.
